"New" Youth Group Starts its Activities & Meetings


This week, St. Joseph Church kicked off the Youth Ministry Programs with a fire & s'mores. The themes for Youth Ministry this year are Pray. Serve. Live. The calendar year is broken up by the themes and the activites and meetings will reflect the theme of the month. At the first meeting, teens created signs that will be constant reminders to the members of the group to grow closer to God. 

The Youth Group meets on Sundays from 2pm-4pm.
