WHO WE ARE

Over the past two decades, the Church in the United States has been greatly enriched by the renewal of ministry with adolescents. The U.S. Catholic Conference issued a new vision for ministry with young people. This vision was expressed as: "Youth Ministry is the response of the Christian community to the needs of young people, and the sharing of the unique gifts of youth with the larger community".

What is needed today is a Church which knows how to respond to the expectations of young people. Jesus wants to enter into dialogue with them and, through his body which is the Church, to propose the possibility of a choice which will require a commitment of their lives. St. Mary of the Angels is such a church and as you scroll down, you will see how the C.Y.T. of St. Marys is meeting the vision described above.

GOALS

1. ......To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.

2. ......To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.

3. ......To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
