Youth Ministry Vision

 The first paragraph in the Catechism of the Catholic Church writes that “[God] calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength.” Our goal for youth ministry at St. Joan of Arc is for all teens to first seek out the God who loves them through encounters of prayer. Second, to know God as a personal God that wants a relationship with them. And finally, to love God by being disciples that proclaim the Gospel message to others.
