Youth Ministry & Confirmation
Saint Paul's has a thriving youth ministry here to guide high school students into deeper relationship with Christ as they become adults in the Church. Lead by our youth minister, Mary Lindsey Edwards, and a team of committed volunteers, we enjoy weekly dinner, games, faith, and fellowship during youth group meetings. We also participate in service projects, retreats, and Catholic summer camps and conferences.
Part of the youth ministry's mission is to prepare students for Confirmation through meaningful encounters with Christ. Please be aware that Confirmation requires a two-year preparation process and teens will need to start the process before their senior year. For more details on requirements and to register for Confirmation preparation, please contact our youth director Mary Lindsey Edwards.
Volunteer with Our Youth
There are so many ways to help our youth! Contact Mary Lindsey for more information! All volunteers must complete Safe Environment Training and complete a background check.
Pray for our Youth
We need your prayers! We have so many competing influences as we work to share the Good News with our teens. Please pray that they continue to grow strong in their Faith. Pray that they will encounter God and experience a deeper conversion as they become the next generation of adults in our Catholic Church. Pray for our Youth director and volunteers that they will model what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Pray that our youth will grow in love towards each other and towards their community more and more each week. Finally, pray that all the youth of our parish will find a home in our Youth Group. Saint Paul...pray for us!

Part of our Youth Ministry model is to have dinner together as a group every Sunday evening! This is a time to grow in fellowship as we build a community for our teens within our larger Church community. You can help by volunteering to bring dinner one night! It is always so appreciated by hungry teens! You can sign up here! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4daeab29a5fec52-youth/140478827#/
