Middle School Youth Ministry (Grades 6-8)

Through every year of middle school, young people move from being family-centered to friend-centered. Peers gain greater influence and authority is called into question. Middle school is a time when kids make important decisions about who they are and what they believe. So at this crucial time, St. Theresa Middle School Youth Ministry – provides a safe, fun place for youth to find a solid Catholic community.
We model and express God's love to our young friends by learning their names, hearing their stories and honoring their God-given desire for a life of fun, adventure and purpose. St. Theresa (MSYM) offers a social community that is fun, active, and welcoming. 
We meet once a month on Sunday from 6:30-8:00 in Church Hall to learn about the liturgical calendar, share time in prayer and relax in the company of their peers.  And there is always FOOD!!!
We participate in a variety of  community service including working the annual Ravioli Feed and putting on a Spring Fling for our senior community. The year ends with a full day of celebration at Great America.
Check out our upcoming dates...we would love for you to drop in and check us out.
