Our mission is to seek the face of Christ and invite teens to join on the Way.
Our vision is to make disciples of all youth in the parish. Our core values are:
Community ― Our communal life and activity seeks to model Acts 2:42: “They committed themselves to the teachings of the Apostles and fellowship, the breaking of bread and prayers.”
Discipleship ― We are committed to personal accompaniment in the form of Christian discipleship.Preaching ― We proclaim Jesus Christ to youth through the power of the Holy Spirit operative in the Catholic Church ― inviting teens to encounter Christ through the Word, Sacraments, and community.
Vocation ― Living out the common Christian vocation (call to holiness and charity), and the promotion of each person’s particular vocation as an essential member of Christ’s body.
Simply put, our mission is to meet Christ and remain in His love.
In our program, teens find a place where they and don’t have to be fake in order to belong. Our teens receive a challenge that urges them beyond the status quo to lead lives of truth and virtue that result in authentic happiness and real freedom.
