Youth Ministry

It is time to kick off youth ministry for the 2017-2018 school year!  The Youth Ministry program is here for your entire family.  We offer programs for the sixth to eight grade students (middle school),  and ninth to twelfth grade students (high school).  We, also, offer support for your entire family and would love to hear from you and learn how we can support your family, pray for them and give you resources to grow as a family in your faith.  

Youth Ministry will be meeting in the newly renovated Upper Room at Mount Saint Peter.  We are looking forward to using the beautiful updated space that was created for the youth of the parish. Please make sure you stop by and see the new space for yourself!  

Youth Ministry uses the Remind App to send out information directly to your email or cell phone as a text message.  If you are interested in receiving reminders or information directly from the youth ministry program, please send your cell phone number or email address to Elizabeth at Additionally, all information for youth ministry is updated in the weekly bulletin at Mount Saint Peter and on our website.  

Permission forms are needed for all events that do not take place on Mount Saint Peter grounds. Please fill out the permission form and turn it into the office.  

We are always looking for more adults that are willing to journey with the students on their walk of faith.  If you or someone you know would like to be intentional about helping your student or others grow in faith, please don't hesitate to contact us. Please contact the Parish Office (724.335.9877) to learn how to become a volunteer with the Youth Ministry program.  

We look forward to walking beside your students and your family this year as we grow in our faith and love of Jesus!
