General Information

COST

There is no cost to attend youth ministry. For extra events there will be a small fee. We try to assist as much as possible via parish subsidy & scholarships.  In lieu of a participation fee we ask parents to assist at various times by providing snacks for youth nights.

WHEN DO WE MEET?

Gatherings are on Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.  Middle School and High School Youth Ministry will meet together on the 1st Sunday of each month. In addition, the Middle School Youth Ministry will meet on the 3rd Sunday of the month and High School Youth Ministry will meet on the 2nd Sunday of the month.

WHO CAN ATTEND?

We welcome all teens who are in grades 6-12. Teens are encouraged to bring friends — parishioners, non-parishioners, Catholics, non-Catholics. 

ATTENDANCE

We do not have an attendance policy. We understand that many teens have extracurricular activities and we do not want to deter them from attending Youth Ministry. Teens are welcome as their schedules permit.

CANCELLATION

If Youth Ministry is cancelled, you will be notified via email or text.. If Youth Ministry is cancelled due to inclement weather, you will be notified via email, text message, and/or an announcements at Sunday Mass.

CODE OF CONDUCT

We strive to create a safe and healthy environment built on respect for God, others, and Church property. Saint Benedict Youth Ministry is smoke, drug, and weapon free. Gatherings are an opportunity for us to gather as a community, therefore we ask that teens refrain from using cell phones and other electronic devices at YM. Out of respect for others, teens are asked to refrain from foul and demeaning language. Teens are asked to respect the opinions of others and to listen when others are speaking. Out of respect for the parish, we expect that teens will not damage Church property and that they will clean up their areas.  All rules are for the safety and well-being of the teens and are expected to followed.
