Youth Ministry

What is the Youth Ministry?
Saint Peter the Apostle Youth Ministry’s mission is to empower teenagers to live their lives as Disciples of Christ.  We promote spiritual growth and development in teenagers by creating a safe and supportive Catholic environment where they can feel comfortable.  

What does the Youth Ministry do?
The Youth Group meets every Sunday from 7pm – 9pm in the Youth Room.  During our meetings we have guided discussions, focused talks, and explore the application of our faith in the teenage life.  Further spiritual growth and development opportunities come from participation in various retreat experiences within the parish as well as within the archdiocese.  Christian service takes place through a variety of service projects.

What is required to become part of this ministry?

Teenagers:  High school students are welcome to come by a Youth Group meeting on any Sunday night.  Just check the bulletin and our Facebook Page to see what we’re up to.
Adults:  Adults who are interested in ministering with the Youth Group should contact Marissa Dabakian via email at  Please be aware that you will need to complete the Archdiocese Protecting God’s Children course prior to actively ministering with the Youth Group.

What is the time commitment?

Teenagers:  There’s no firm commitment necessary to join the Youth Group.  We meet every Sunday from 7pm – 9pm in the Youth Room.  Feel free to drop by for a meeting, or just part of a meeting if that’s all you can make.  You don’t have to come every week to be part of the Youth Group.
Adults:  There are various opportunities to minister in the Youth Ministry.  These range from a couple of hours for help setting up, to chaperoning longer events.  We’re open to working with your availability.
