Youth Ministry

Learn how we'll do ministry with our middle school and high school youth as we build upon their religious education received by the parish and school toward deepening their relationship with Jesus and helping them to more intentionally walk by faith beyond the walls of Holy Rosary.

All youth ministry volunteers will participate in Youth Ministry training and Youth Protection/Safe Environment training.  Background checks are required.
