Youth Ministry

Mission Statement

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age” (Matthew 28: 19-20).

We have been called:

To be zealous apostles within our world. To lead one another into closer relationship with Jesus. To speak the truth with courage.

We are committed:

To this baptismal call. To serving the Church in Her greatest need. To empowering the members of the Diocese of Thunder Bay to lead our teens
closer to Christ.

Our Role:

We are a resource for you, the members of the Diocese of Thunder Bay. Please call or email us with your questions regarding Youth Ministry.
For example:

* How can I become involved as a volunteer?
* Where can I go to learn more about my faith?
* How can I start up something for the youth in my parish?
* What is already going on that I can tap into?
