DID YOU KNOW?
- 80% of Catholics stop practicing their faith and are no longer Catholic by the time they turn 23
- Only 1 out of 4 practicing young Catholics attend mass regularly
- 43% of those that identify as Catholic, never attend mass
- 65% of teens that attend mass and participate in youth group stop within 3 months of starting college
Is the Lord Calling You?
Children who remain in their faith have had at least five adults in their lives that walked with them in their faith. Will you be one of those 5 walking with these young people? If so, please volunteer to help in some way. We must have 1 cleared adult for every 8 children or there is no youth group. If the Lord is calling you, here’s what you can do:
Youth Leadership Council
We are also putting together a Youth Leadership Council for the next school year with youth who will be in the 6th thru 12th grades. There will only be two youth per grade selected to serve on this council which is a peer group that will help plan and execute youth nights.
Adult Core Team
Must be 18 or older, able to pass a background check and attend a Protecting God’s Children class. If interested, please submit a volunteer form which will be followed by an interview in order to understand how you would like to help. Ways you can help include planning, preparing meals/snacks, chaperone youth nights and/or field trips, etc.
Applications for adult and youth leadership teams can be obtained from the church office or on the church website under Volunteer Forms.
