St. Raphael’s Youth Ministry is part of an international Catholic movement that serves the Church by providing resources and faith experiences that help lead teens closer to Christ. This is accomplished through a vibrant Eucharistic spirituality and by creating widespread opportunities for teens to grow in their faith.
At the weekly Sunday, 5:30 PM Youth Mass, teens and their families experience the depths of God’s love through the Word, the community, and the Eucharist. Relevant preaching and quality music bring the Catholic Mass to life.
Following the Youth Mass, trained youth ministers and Core members lead the teens deeper into their Catholic life in the Youth Night experience. As a faith community, the teens grow in understanding of what it means to be young and Catholic in the new millennium. The teens are affirmed, educated, and challenged to live the Gospel.
