Currently our Youth Ministry Program serves 9-12th grade youth. Middle School Youth Ministry (6-8th grade) Coming in Spring of 2021!

Welcome to the St Mary of the Woods Youth Ministry!

Our High School meets for Sunday Night Youth Gatherings on Sundays from 5-7 PM in the Horn Community Center (HCC) in the Activity Room. Once you walk through the main doors into the gym, take a right onto the walking track and keep going straight. I’m sure you’ll hear us. All High School Youth grades 9-12 are welcome and invited to attend. We begin with a meal (unless indicated otherwise) then move into either a time of prayer, teaching, fellowship or service. See the schedule below to figure out what we are up to each week!

If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry Jessy Bennett during office hours or via email
