Get involved with a fun community of kids who assist during church on Sunday evenings. Youth ministers of the Word minister at the 6:00pm Sunday Masses. They proclaim the scripture readings of the day, lead the Prayers of the Faithful and read the announcements at the end of Mass. The assigned 3-4 youth ministers rehearse with an Adult Lector Coach the hour before Mass begins.
