Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry is for teens, with teens and by teens!
ND CHEERS is a comprehensive experience for all high school teens and includes Confirmation preparation, service activities, retreats, peer leadership, mission trips, fun and faith formation!

*Empower teens to live as disciples of Jesus
*Support and provide for their participation in the life, mission and work of our faith community

*Foster their personal and spiritual growth.
*Ultimately serving this goal, the mission of our youth ministry is to create faith-based opportunities through education, sacraments and fellowship for all youth in our community and to develop, foster and support them on their faith journey.

We hope that our young people will be immersed in the experience of our parish community, and see themselves as a vital part of Notre Dame, the Catholic Church, and the whole body of Christ. In our youth and teen ministry, we have fun and further discover our faith, while creating a fun and safe place for the Holy Spirit to work.
