Sanctus Youth Ministry

Welcome to Sanctus Youth Ministry!

Sanctus Youth MinistryHello! Welcome to the home page of Sanctus Youth Ministry!Sanctus Rosary

Sanctus Youth Ministry was started in summer 2020. There are two things that the Catholic youth of today need: an encounter with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and an understanding of their faith grounded in history, reason, tradition, and scripture. My hope is that this ministry will successfully strengthen their relationship with Jesus as well as teach the youth about their faith so that as they continue on through High School and into college, they will be prepared to live out a fully Catholic life in a world that is hostile to that faith. At the same time, we recognize that not everyone is Catholic - though we hope them to be! - and so we welcome all youth, regardless of their faith background. Just be prepared to talk about Jesus, because we are not going to mince words - we teach only what has been taught by the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church!

 

Mission: Creating a strong Catholic environment founded on growing in knowledge of the faith, creating relationships that strengthen hope, and engaging in acts of charity, all for the glory of God.

Vision: To be a group of devout and virtuous disciples of Jesus Christ who are resolute in their faith and dedicated to sanctifying themselves, the community, and the world for God.
