" You get more out of going to Mass when you're involved as a server or something."
 
 This is what a group of  teens involved in the
altar server, lector, and music ministries
were saying when we got together recently.  
 
    If you have ever thought about joining one of these ministries, please contact me and I can point you in the right direction.
 
And thank you to all of you who currently serve as servers, lectors, cantors, musicians, and ushers.

For Everyone That Has Already Graduated From High School

Dear Parents,
Over the years, a team of adult leaders/youth ministers has developed allowing our parish to provide a broad variety of programs to reach teens with a broad range of interests. Consider what we have available for high school teens at our parish. Please encourage your children to get involved in whatever best fits their  interests.  If you need help figuring out where they would feel most comfortable, please contact me.    

Peace ,
