St. Patrick Parish Youth Ministry
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.

Parents are needed to assist in Youth Ministry
as chaperones, drivers, teachers,
craftsmen, coaches, and more. If you have some time to spare (how much is up to you)
come and share your talents with some really cool teenagers. The rewards are amazing!
All volunteers are required to comply with the Diocesan Safe
before working with the students.
“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!
