In our ongoing response to keep people safe in the midst of the Corornavirus threat, we have decided to cancel all youth activities for the month of March.  We will evaluate April offerings as we get closer to that time.  I will keep everyone posted on developments.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

May the peace of Christ keep our hearts and minds during this time!

St. Sebastian Parish is committed to providing a special place in our church community devoted to the needs and interests of our youth. We welcome your teen to become involved in the Youth Ministry program. We recognize that our youth are pulled in many directions and we want to provide a path that we hope leads them to a deeper relationship with God and that fosters a greater sense of belonging in the St. Sebastian faith community.

Junior High Youth Ministry

The Junior High Youth Ministry is for all Junior High students in 7th and 8th grades. There are plenty of social opportunities, as well as service projects and faith-based programs. Youth Ministry is a super way to stay in touch with old friends, and to make new ones too! It's a great way to stay involved in parish life and in the community. Youth are encouraged to become involved!

Join us for our Junior High Youth Nights every month to discuss our faith and how it relates to the things happening in our lives.  We discuss bullying, peer pressure, trust, decision making skills and many other teen issues.

High School Youth Ministry

The High School Youth Ministry is for all High School students in grades 9-12. There are plenty of social outings, service opportunities and faith-based programs.
