You too, dear young people, can be joyful witnesses of His love, courageous witnesses of His Gospel, carrying to this world a ray of His light. ~Pope Francis

Youth Ministry



If you’d like up to the minute communications via text and email, please join our Flock by clicking on the sheep to the left.


We are currently looking for help in the following areas:

  • Prayer – The best and most effective way to help, is prayer.  Please remember teens everywhere, especially those from our parish whom you may or may nor know in your prayers.
  • Core Team – A relational ministry for those a year or more out of high school.  If you love God, have a heart for teens, and find yourself praying about them, God may be calling you to work with them.  They will be the heart that keeps this ministry pumping.
  • Kitchen Crew – We are looking to form three or four dinner teams who alternate each week to feed the teens and core.  If you love to cook,  clean, serve, organize, or just want to be part of the coolest parents at St Josephs, this could be for you.  They’ll help behind the scenes, so don’t worry about invading your teen’s space. 

If you’d like to help with any of the above or want to help, but don’t know where you best fit, contact our Youth Minister, Allen Austin, at
