Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry

The St. Pius X Youth Ministry Group endeavors to build fellowship among our parish’s teens while teaching them more about the Catholic faith and serving the community. The Youth Ministry holds team building events and engages in various service activities in the community and in our parish on a regular monthly basis during the academic school year. This ministry is open to all high school students, grades 9 through 12, who are members of our parish. Each school year, two of our Youth Ministry members have the option to serve as liaisons at the monthly Parish Council meetings where they report on past, current and upcoming events. We welcome and appreciate service opportunity ideas the students wish to share and we coordinate with them to add the volunteer opportunity to the program.   

All teens participating in the Youth Ministry are awarded Certificates based on their hours of participation. Teens performing at least 20 hours of community service receive the “Light of the World” Award and the member with the highest number of hours receives the “Salt of the Earth” Award.
