The goal of St. Francis de Sales Youth Group is to provide an opportunity for high-school students to build community, foster fellowship among their peers and experience spiritual growth in an atmosphere of acceptance, love and understanding.The Group seeks to help students recognize their gifts and draw them into responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic Church. We hope they become our link of trust and service between the young and the old of the Parish.
St. Francis de Sales Youth Group is open to any teen who is being religiously educated here at the Parish and who is willing to keep the rules.
GOOD THINGS THAT AUTOMATICALLY BECOME THEIRS: Friends; working closely with priests, staff and advisors; retreats; outside activities (hayrides, bowling, movies); and use of the gym almost any time. This Youth Group is almost totally self-supporting and the members work very hard to complete their yearly projects. The group had 62 members this past year.The final GOAL is: If the members give of themselves to their services and remain connected to the program there is a trip at the end of each year to strengthen the community they have built through the year. This is not guaranteed unless they earn it.
