Our mission is to help teens develop a deep personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Through this relationship, active roles in their parish communities, and the love and example of joyful adult Catholics, our prayer is that teens will search for fulfillment in the Eucharist and the Catholic church when they leave their homes after graduation.

Youth, in general, often feel isolated, but this feeling can be particularly strong in the rural areas of our Archdiocese where it is a logistical reality.  We want all youth to know that God knows them; He cares about them specifically; He loves them no matter their situation.

"I have called you by name, you are Mine."  ~Isaiah 43:1
