The whole goal of St. Mark Youth Ministry is to lead teens and their families to a life-long, personal relationship with a real person – Jesus Christ.  Every task of our ministry, every lesson, event, retreat, service and all of our activities and conversations point to and flow through the Eucharist the source and summit of our faith, and in our model Blessed Mother Mary.


This is what we are about.

We plant seeds one day that will grow.

We water seeds already planted knowing that they hold future promise.

We lay foundations that will need further development.

We provide yeast that produces effects far beyond our capabilities.

 

We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. 

This enables us to do something, and do it very, very well. 

It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest. 

We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the Master Builders and the worker.

We are workers not Master Builders…ministers, not Messiahs. 

We are prophets of a future that is not our own.

FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME A CORE MEMBER/CATECHIST?

What better way to explain what YOU can get out of being a Core Member/Catechist but to quote some of our past members.

As catechists, we have a “first row seat” in the growth of our Holy Catholic Church.  The opportunity to witness  the development of a child’s faith is the greatest reward; we are blessed.

Catechist/Core Member/Volunteer

"It is not difficult or time consuming to help with the EDGE, and yet your impact is so important.  At a time when our young people are bombarded with many, many messages that pull them away from God and the Church, it is critical for them to have role models and caring adults to guide them back to a holy path."

Catechist/Core Member/Volunteer

Being on Core provides discussion points not only to share with the middle schoolers in your group, but with family members as well.

It was good to be a part of the development and formation of the youth in my group, and watch as they came to understand how the Church wants what is best for them overall.

Catechist/Core Member/Volunteer

EDGE allows us to express our faith and guide kids in transition.  It also allows us to learn more about our faith from the perspective of a child.                                                                                                                                                          

Catechist/Core Member/Volunteer

"Our youth today, and especially the teens, are starved for more information about their faith, the Catholic church doctrine and the bible.  Simple answers won't due anymore.  They want questions answered and to be able to have deep discussions.  Our programs at St. Mark's offers those platforms.   For me, the most rewarding thing is to watch the freshman that we guide in Theology of the Body grow in to beautiful, spiritual young men and women and to see them reach out to their fellow teens without help from the adults"
