Youth Ministry



MISSION STATEMENT

St. George Youth Ministry is formed to serve the youth of this parish from Junior High through College.  We call young people to active participation in the life, mission and work of our faith community.  We accomplish this through offering a comprehensive program including the components recommended by the US Catholic Bishops in the 1997 document, Renewing the Vision of Catholic Youth Ministry.



DISCIPLES OF CHRIST’S KINGDOM (D.O.C.K.)

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul,
firm and secure. Hebrews 6: 19

We are excited to announce that the youth group of St. George and St. Julie Billiart will have a new name! We are all striving to become disciples of Jesus and since that is our mission we want to reflect this in our name. We are asking our Blessed Mother, Mary Star of the Sea, to be our patroness and Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati to be our patron. Mary, of course, was the first disciple of Jesus and is a wonderful role model to all of us. Blessed Pier was a young man who loved Christ very much and showed it in his devotion to daily Mass and helping the poor. He is a great role model to the young especially as he was young and adventurous but he always put Christ first. We strive to be like both of these Saints and we ask their intercession and prayers along with yours as we grow in our faith and take our love for Jesus “to the heights”.

November 21—24, 2019: Five of our teens will be attending National Catholic Youth Conference. We ask that you please keep us in your prayers as we learn more about our faith and build a deeper relationship with Jesus! Thank you for your support and prayers!
