Youth Ministries

CCD

Mary, Mother of Hope's youth group is dedicated to empowering high school students from grades 9 - 12 to live as disciples of Jesus Christ through responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of our faith community. It fosters a personal spiritual growth through on going scripture study. It encourages a sharing with the larger community through programs and events.

The parish community of Mary, Mother of Hope is committed to our teens, to bring them closer to Christ. We recognize that our teens have a unique and particular need. They endure many pressures in a culture directed by materialism and pleasure, but they also have powerful gifts that make them ready to receive the message of the Gospel and to serve Christ in the Church and in the world.

We encourage every teen to be involved. Transformation and formation in Christ does not end once a person has received the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation). Parents should join the parish in an active role to provide our teens with experiences and signs of love that will lead them to a rich experience of Christ's call to them.

"This is what is needed: a Church for young people, which will know how to speak to their heart and enkindle, comfort, and inspire enthusiasm in it with the joy of the Gospel and the strength of the Eucharist; a Church which will know how to invite and to welcome the person who seeks a purpose for which to commit his whole existence; a Church which is not afraid to require much, after having given much; which does not fear asking from young people the effort of a noble and authentic adventure, such as that of the following of the Gospel."
John Paul II, 1995 World Day of Prayer for Vocations
