St. Anthony of Padua Youth Ministry

Jr. High and High School students meet one Sunday a month.  Meetings are held in the “Youth Room” in the parish office.  All students are welcome to join, as we explore our Catholic Faith in a unique way, often with a fun or crazy activity.  “Youth Nights” are a great way to draw closer to God, in a relaxed environment, while meeting other youth.  Refreshments will be served.  Hope to see you there!
