We hold a strong commitment to young people.  We offer a wide array of opportunities for youth to explore their personal faith and their connection to the Church and wider community.  Fellowship events help youth build bonds as a community of peers.  See our youth in action.  Check out the photo albums on the Children and Youth page.
