Teen Ministry provides a bridge between the "need to" and the "want to" aspects of the church community. It is designed to complement the ongoing faith formation of teenagers by inviting them to embrace the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ in a non-traditional setting. These settings include relaxed fun gatherings, interactive service events, field trips and opportunities for prayerful reflection.
A key component of Teen Ministry is to offer teens the freedom to ask questions and be critical of their faith so they can be open to experiencing God in newer and deeper ways.
The ultimate goal of Teen Ministry is that teens will live as twenty-first century disciples and take Jesus' mission into the world by the way they live their lives.

Service is a part of who we are as Christians, so it never stops. God provides gifts and talents to each of us in order to help others. Some of service opportunities include Christmas for Kids in December and the Birthright Carnation sale in May. Also included are the four Youth Ministry fundraisers: Spookghetti Supper, Gift Card Sale, St. Patty's Day Breakfast and the Monks' Bread Sale. Teens also help with other parish ministries such as Altar Rosary Society and the Haiti committee.
