Youth Ministry

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!
