Youth Ministry


Wednesdays from 7-8pm starting May 6th!

6-week series on the book of Genesis for youth from 6th-12th grade (we'll break into groups by age for discussions).

All you need to do to participate is login to the Zoom meeting on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm. Our first meeting is Wednesday, May 6 from 7-8 pm. I'll have a drawing for a Door Prize (gift certificate) every week. Everyone gets their name in the drawing for attending the meeting. You can earn additional chances to win by rocking the weekly dress-up challenge and participating in games and discussion.

High School Youth Ministry

All St. Joseph the Worker high school youth are invited to join the High School Youth Ministry as a way to continue their Faith Formation outside of the confines of the classroom. We'll let you know about our upcoming events, meetings and projects!

Junior High Youth Ministry

Our Junior High Youth Group (grades 6, 7 & 8) have their own meetings and events throughout the year, too! We ask that all 6th, 7th & 8th graders join in the Faith Formation program, as well as participate in Youth Ministry. Watch the bulletin and emails through the Faith Formation mailing lists to stay updated on all of the Middle School Youth Group happenings.

Health History

Our diocese requires that a Health History of each youth be updated YEARLY, in order for youth to participate in church events.  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to inform the church of any changes in health status for the named participant.  Please complete the form and mail it to the church or drop it in the collection basket during Mass.  To print the form click here.
