SJS Youth Mission & Values

Throughout the year, we offer opportunities for leadership development, service to the community, personal growth, and social events. The fostering of personal and spiritual growth continues to drive our youth program as we strive to afford our youth the chance to grow and live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world.


To meet these goals, SJS Youth (St. Joseph's Youth Ministry) gathers on the First and Third Sunday of each month (September-May) for fellowship, prayer, and faith discussions. Outside of these regular gatherings, we offer a "Drop-In" Night where youth may gather to talk, play games, and work on homework in a safe environment. Throughout the summer, other opportunities for fellowship, spiritual development, and retreats are offered.


The youth are not the future church, they are the church.” — ST. John Paul II
