Youth Ministry-High School

Youth Ministry of Holy Spirit and St. Joseph Parishes


Welcome! The High School Youth Ministry program at Holy Spirit and St. Joseph Parishes (sALt) is for teens in High School interested in developing a community that provides opportunities for social interaction, meaningful participation in the Church, but most importantly, opportunities to encounter Christ.  Our program includes liturgies, social events, retreats, service projects and programs geared towards and relevant to the issues and struggles that are faced daily by teens as they grow and mature.  We welcome all teens of any or no particular faith to participate in any and all Youth Ministry events. Let this be the year we get to know you!

Insight Nights to Return to Being In-Person

We have returned to in-person meetings starting Sunday June 28th from 7:30-9:30 at Holy Spirit.

As a rule going forward we will be meeting outside around the bon fire, please plan to bring a chair and dress accordingly.

Please also wear a mask (yes, even though we're outside) and maintain 6 ft distance from those who are not in your household.

Rain Plan-In the event of rain we will still have Insight Night, just underneath the overhang in front of the Church.

Thunderstorm plan: We'll announce closer to-keep an eye on Remind!
