“Each of us has a fire in our hearts for something. It’s our goal in life to find it and keep it lit.”
– Mary Lou Retton
The Youth Outreach Team is an opportunity for those in high school to put their faith in action by reaching out to others in service. This group meets about twice a month beginning in September through the beginning of June in preparation for the summer mission trip. The meetings include Catholic Social Teaching, prayer, and team-building activities as well as opportunities to serve within our parish and in our community.
In order to participate in the mission trip, each member is required to have a minimum of 25 service hours with the team each year. Hours are earned through team service projects, fundraisers, and outside service opportunities.
The team also has adult volunteers who help teens prepare for service and attend the week-long mission trip. Space is limited.
