NEW FOR 2016!!!
Contact for Youth and Young Adult Ministry is Fr. Carroll
IHS (In His Service) Youth Program for grades 3 and 4 meets quarterly (4 times) throughout the year. We encourage all students in grades 3 and 4 to participate. Please keep an eye on the bulletin for gatherings. These gatherings have three purposes;
C.I.A (Christ is alive!) Youth Program for grades 5 thru 7. This program brings together Religious Education and Youth Ministry and will meet on the 2nd Friday of every month from 6 – 9 pm. The program counts as three hours of Religious Education, so for parents having difficulty on Sunday Mornings may use this program as an alternative.
CHOSEN BY CHRIST 8th Grade Confirmation Prep Program is geared towards our 8th grade class preparing to be confirmed. They will meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays from 6:30 – 9 pm. The program blends learning, prayer and service and will strive to help them to see their role in the Church.
C.I.A (II) (Christ in Action!) Youth Program is for all students in grades 9 thru 12. Our high school program blends learning, service, spiritual growth, and fun. This group will meet as a norm each 1st Sunday of every month from 6:30 – 9 pm.
MERGE (Less of me, more of Him) Parish Based College Ministry is open to all local college students (our own and others) attending Saint Patrick Church during the year and our own students when home during the break and summer. Our parish based program is not intended to usurp Catholic Ministry on local college campuses but help them to see how they can use their gifts in a parish setting. As we meet it also provides an opportunity for our young people to engage and ask questions.
EPIC (This is His story) Young Adult Program is open to all young adults 18 to 35 and meets bi monthly September thru May and monthly during the summer months of June, July, and August. We hope that this program will give our young adults an opportunity to grow in knowledge and grow spiritually while allowing them to gather with others who share the Catholic Faith.
As pastor I am truly excited about the potential these programs can bring to our parish! If anyone is interested in joining or assisting us with any of these programs please do not hesitate to call the parish office at 717-848-2007 or email me at email@example.com.
