Youth and Young Adult Ministry
Welcome to Immaculate Conception’s Youth and Young Adult Ministry!
The Youth and Young Adult Ministry journeys with our young people as they come to know, love, and live the Good News of Jesus in their lives. This ministry has a four pillared approach: catechesis, spiritual formation, outreach, and social interaction. Our activities include meetings, fellowship, service opportunities, retreats, and summer programs. All are welcome. Come and join us!
We the youth of Immaculate Conception Parish and St. Jude Mission Church, while being the vibrant church of today, fuel the church of tomorrow by effectively unifying the youth of our community in the love of Jesus.
We aim to create an environment where we can be active through service to the community, through prayer and worship, and through education to further our Catholic faith. We do this while upholding the mission of our parish and trusting in the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Youth ministry is more than programs and events!
It is “the response of the Christian community to the needs of young people, and the sharing of the unique gifts of youth with the larger community”.
