About Our Ministry


St. Theresa’s Parish Youth and Young Adult Ministry empowers young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.

We do this by drawing young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community, which fosters the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

The Ministry responds to the needs of young people and involves them in sharing their unique gifts with the larger Catholic community. In return, we develop leadership skills, self-confidence, a stronger sense of justice, and spiritual growth within a safe and caring community.
