Welcome to
St. Mark Youth Ministry


Dear Young People, my joyful hope is to see you keep running the race before you…”May the Holy Spirit urge you on as you run this race. The Church needs your momentum, your intuitions, your faith. We need them!” Pope Francis

Our Diocesan annual theme this year is RUN THIS RACE from Pope Francis’ Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation CHRISTUS VIVIT (Christ is Alive!)


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
