Prayer Partners: All parishioners are welcomed to join in youth and young adult ministry through prayer. Dedicate a holy hour, pray a rosary, offer a mass, or just say a brief prayer of intercession for the young and young adults of the parish and those ministering to them. No need to sign up, but you can let us know if you plan to join in this partnership of prayer.
For High School: FUSED Youth Ministry exists to connect, excite, and educate, teens in the Catholic faith through a variety of opportunities. All volunteers working with minors must be Safe Environment certified (training provided).

High school youth are a blessing to any parish community and St. Mary’s strives to include high school youth in every aspect of parish life.
Fused High School Ministry encompasses all ministries designed to bring high school youth closer to the love of God, bind them in a better relationship with Jesus and create a community among the youth. Be inspired by the latest Christian music, mission trips, and other exciting programs.
Discover more about yourself in a Small Group. Gather with friends old friends and make new ones in a comfortable place you choose and discuss your faith. What does it mean to grow in faith? How do I do that? What do we believe? Why do we believe it? Who is Jesus? Who or what is God? Discover answers to these questions together by reflecting on the Scriptures.
Have fun with your friends and meet new ones while helping those in need. Experience the rewards of supporting your community. Service Projects at St. Mary’s are varied and throughout the year. Serve at the Dorothy Day Center, visit residents at the Cerenity Car Center, serve at Feed My Starving Children, or be a small group leader for Summer BLAST.
Retreats and Social Events happen throughout the year – Concerts, Retreats, Ski Trips and more!
