Leaders (3 adults and 4 youth per Mass) escort the children to their room and read the Gospel reading followed by discussion. The children participate in an activity to relate the meaning of the Gospel to their lives. They are asked to bring food or money for their basket which is carried in upon the return to church. Training is required for both adult and youth.

Youth Ministry: Junior and Senior High Programs                        

Youth Ministry at St. Michael is a ministry which allows youth and adults to walk together and grow in their faith journeys. It is lead by the Youth Advocacy Leadership Team (Y.A.L.T.) and provides a chance for participants to grow through prayer, service, justice work, education, mentoring, youth rallies, and retreats.
The program consists of both a high school program (9th through 12th grade students) and a junior high program (7th and 8th grade students.) The programs do work together at different events throughout the year and are both represented on the Youth Advocacy Leadership Team. High school meets on Sunday evenings for our drop-in program from 7pm to 9pm during the school year, and junior high meets Tuesday evenings from 7pm to 9pm throughout the school year in the Youth Space. Both programs consist of many special events throughout the year including retreat programming, service days, mission trips, fellowship days, and family events. Mentors are needed to help out with all of the programming within youth ministry and are welcome to join us to provide positive examples of adults living out their call to live as Christians. Volunteers are needed both for one night events, longer projects, and are invited to be a part of our Leadership Team.
