Sacred Journey Youth Ministry 
Saint George and Saint Julie Billiart

Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement:  Guided by the Holy Spirit, we the teens of Saint George and Saint Julie are on the road to sainthood, to better help serve others by spreading the Gospel, while growing in our relationships with Jesus and Mary to bring joy and love into others’ lives.

Sacred Journey Youth Ministry serves junior high and high school teens from St. George and St. Julie Billiart parishes, but all teens are welcome.  We offer a comprehensive youth ministry program composed of teen meetings (faith formation discussions and activities, games, and snacks), Teen Hosted Masses, service projects, social activities, retreats, summer mission trips, and recreational sports.  Through this programming, we hope to help youth learn more about their faith and recognize how Jesus is active in their lives.  In doing so, they will be active witnesses in our parish, community, and the world. 

If you would like more information about our youth ministry program, please contact youth minister, Mrs. Kristen Maxwell at or
