The Youth Group is an organization established for teens in grades 7 through 12.  It is run by high school age young adults under the guidance of our parish Youth Ministers. We provide a Christian atmosphere in which members share and grow in their faith, discuss contemporary issues, share in liturgies, work on service projects, attend retreats, and participate in activities such as a ballgames, bowling, and hiking and more. 

Our Core Team, comprised of Youth Group members plan our meetings and events with our Youth Ministers. The Youth Group meets at St. Matthew's on the 2nd Saturday of the month beginning with the 5 PM Mass until 8 PM (October - March).  Throughout the year the Youth Group will host a variety of events in order to share our faith with other teens and provide service for our community at large.  These events will be held at different locations.

Some of the events that  the Youth Group hold are an annual Christmas Wreath Sale, Food Drives, the Living Stations of the Cross, and more!

All Teens, grades 7 through high school are welcome to attend meetings at any time during the year.  Friends are always welcome!  Dates, times and location are sent out via email and instagram and facebook.
