If you are a committed Catholic adult from 18-90 years old interested in helping with either our Life Teen High School ministry (gr.10-12) or our Edge
middle school ministry (gr. 6-9), we’d like to hear from you! We provide Core members with training, spiritual formation, fellowship and fun, as we joyfully draw near to the Lord who is our strength (Neh. 8:10).
Some Benefits of being a Youth Ministry Volunteer include:

- Developing friendships with other adults and being a mentor to youth
- Core members & Support Leaders can request a reference letter
