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 and meaningful participation in the Church.  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 of the youth ministry events. Keep an eye on this page for further updates as we continue to expand the program. Hope to see you here
