St. Patrick Parish Youth Ministry

Mission Statement

We, the youth of St. Patrick Parish are driven by the power of Jesus Christ to pray, to serve and to grow in our faith.
With Christ like actions we reach out to our community through ministry, education, and social activities.
Together we hope to grow not only in numbers but also in faith, hope and love.

Youth Group activities are open to all students in grades 8th thru 12th

We meet on the first and third Sundays of each month in the Teen Room in St. Patrick Center,
right after 5:00 p.m. Mass (6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.)

We pray, play games like pool and ping pong, listen to music, have small discussions.

Each month we participate in a service project in our community, including yard work for the Carmelites,
Souper Bowl of Caring, Lovewalk for the Poor.

We also enjoy monthly social activities such as the Gateway Clipper Cruise, cookout and bonfire,
Christmas party and movie nights.

“Blessed are the merciful for they shall receive God’s mercy.”  Matthew 5:7

Teens from St. Patrick Youth Group have taken to Pope Francis and his message of mercy.

They have been making and selling hoagies to raise funds to get to Krakow, Poland for World Youth Day 2016 with Pope Francis. When they heard that the Washington City Mission needed some help feeding the people who count on the Mission for daily meals, they said “We can help.”

So, they used some of the funds from their next hoagie sale to buy the ingredients to make 100 more hoagies. They got up early to make the hoagies in the school cafeteria. Parents pitched in to add chips and watermelon. Then, they loaded everything up and took it to Washington to “Feed the Hungry.”

They served lunch to about 80 people, who are homeless or just in need of a little help with meals.

At the end of the day they said they had fun working with each other, really enjoyed talking with the residents of the mission, and felt good about serving the Lord by serving others. They will be back to serve again!
