Youth Ministry

St. Bede's Youth Ministry is dedicated to creating a space where teens can come together in Christian community to be there for one another as Jesus Christ is there for each of us.  Our events are dedicated to connecting teens spiritually and socially through fun games, prayer experiences, service opportunities, sports and outdoor activities, the arts and more.  We aim to grow in Christian virtue through coming together and building a supportive and encouraging network that recognizes the youth as the Church of today as well as tomorrow.  With God's guidance, the youth of the St. Bede's will gain a deeper understanding of and respect of one another, serve those in need, participate in the sacraments, develop a personal spirituality and prayer life, participate in the Church community and deepen their relationship with Jesus.
