Youth Ministry

C.Y.G.N.U.S.

(Catholic Youth Growing Nurturing Understanding & Serving)

The purpose of St. Joseph’s Youth Ministry is to help our young people grow closer to Jesus Christ as they form friendships and get involved in their Parish home.

We encourage participation in various ministries, as well as offer social, spiritual and service opportunities. Our CYGNUS and Jr. CYGNUS youth groups offer year round events such as weekly gatherings, retreats, mission trips and more. While we are always learning about our Catholic faith, this is not a class-no books, no homework!

All parish teens and their friends are encouraged to get involved in CYGNUS (grades 9-12) and Jr. CYGNUS (grades 7 & 8).
