The goal of the Divine Redeemer Youth Ministry Program is to provide young people with opportunities to bring life to their faith and bring their faith to life. We strive to provide programs that will help them grow in their faith, embrace its traditions and discover the gift God has given and their call to be good stewards of those gifts. Youth Ministry creates a safe, supportive and enabling environment for them to become fully active members of Divine Redeemer and the universal Church.
Youth group is a less structured, more social gathering than Youth Formation classes. It is topic oriented and open to all regardless of their enrollment status in formation classes. Youth group gatherings include prayer, games, and presentations that are focused on the topic for the evening. Friends are always welcome at Youth Group and there is no cost, and no registration required. Topics for the fall will be announced through the parish bulletin and website.
Below is the JUNE calendar! Take a look and add us to your schedule!
