YOUTH MINISTRY PROGRAMMING
POWERED BY LIFE TEEN
Youth Ministry at St. Vincent de Paul is a community effort designed to empower teens to become holistically Catholic. We work to provide experiences that expose teens to a variety of spiritual environments while encouraging them to invest in their personal conversation with God in order to discern who God is calling them to be.
Life Teen is a powerful resource for creating a challenging environment of dynamic learning, fun, and Catholic spiritual discovery. You can learn more about Life Teen by visiting them at www.lifeteen.com.
“What really matters in life is that we are loved by Christ and that we love Him in return. In comparison to the love of Jesus, everything else is secondary. And, without the love of Jesus, everything is useless.”
WHAT REALLY MATTERS.
POPE ST. JOHN PAUL II

“Today you are being called to commit yourselves in this way: accepting to follow Christ, you proclaim that the way of perfect love passes through the total and constant gift of oneself. Wherever people are suffering, wherever they are humiliated by poverty or injustice, and wherever a mockery is made of their rights, make it your task to serve them.”
ST POPE JOHN PAUL II
