Welcome to
St. Mark Youth Ministry

 


May the God of hope fill you with all joy, and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Roman 15:13

Our Diocesan annual theme this year which Bishop Burbidge has prayerfully chosen is designed to help each of us embrace the hope in our lives. Hope, not in the sense of wishful thinking; rather, hope in the eternal joy and peace that unity in Christ offers us, the hope for which Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, and the hope that “is the sure and steadfast anchor of the soul.” (CCC 1820)

 

St. Mark Youth Ministry offers programs for Jr. High (grades 6-8), High School (grades 9-12), and College-aged (ages 18-22) youth.

Youth Ministry strives to help the parish become a “Church for young people, which will know how to speak to their heart, en-kindle, comfort, and inspire enthusiasm in it with the joy of the Gospel and the strength of the Eucharist; a Church which will know how to invite and to welcome the person who seeks a purpose for which to commit his whole existence; a Church which is not afraid to require much, after having given much; which does not fear asking from young people the effort of a noble and authentic adventure, such as that of following of the Gospel.”

–St. John Paul the Great, 1995 World Day of Prayer for Vocations
