YouthLeader is a team approach to Christian leadership formation for youth and adult leaders that integrates Christian spirituality and ministry skills. The purpose of YouthLeader is to empower young people for Christian leadership in Church and the wider community. This program is based upon the following principles:

• The voice of youth must be heard if we are to announce the Good News to its fullest.
• Youth have gifts and charisms to share in leadership and ministry.
• Youth who are striving to be young disciples deserve training and support.
• Adults make a crucial difference in sponsoring youth as leaders by preparing the community and providing ongoing support. TO LEARN MORE
YouthLeader is an opportunity for our young church to come together as leaders - empowering them with the necessary skills to be true leaders in their faith. It is an opportunity for you the YOUTH MINISTER to work with your core group of student leaders to develop a strong program of ministry - by building disciples of faith - through prayer, community and service!

"The Poor have much to teach you .... You have much to learn from them. ... St. Vincent de Paul

midnight run

Jesus teaches us another way: Go out. Go out and share your testimony, go out and interact with your brothers, go out and share, go out and ask. Become the Word in body as well as spirit.

Pope Francis

This past year, the young people from our parish youth groups, high schools, college and young adult groups, took Pope Francis words to heart and participated in 28 Midnight Runs. What is a Midnight Run? It's the opportunity to allow the Christ that each of us holds inside to meet the Christ in another. By serving the poor, we become one with them as Jesus did. Through these Jesus Runs groups bring food, clothing, conversation and hope to those who are materially poor. These Jesus runs help us to bring the Church out to the streets as we embrace those whose only experience of Church may be through the eyes an hands of those who serve them.

If you are interested in either participating in one of these runs, have your group do a sock, hoodie or backpack drive or make toiletry bags please contact Marianne Sheridan at I would be happy to do o presentation for your group and to help you organize your own run. 
Thank you for all you are doing in your youth groups to encourage our young people to be aware of the needs of others.
