Program Mission

It is Holy Family’s hope that at the end of the 2-year Confirmation preparation process teens will…

  • know they have a home at Holy Family and within the larger Catholic Church,
  • believe that the Holy Spirit leads our church and is an advocate in their lives, and
  • have participated with their households in…
    • regular Sunday worship and liturgical ministry
    • service to the wider community
    • Faith Formation sessions
    • Community Life events

We meet one Sunday a month from 3:30 – 5:15 and attend the 5:30pm Mass as a group. We also have a Tuesday option the Tuesday following the Sunday meeting.

Youth Ministry


Holy Family Youth Ministry is a comprehensive youth program grounded in the mission of Jesus and the Catholic Church, directed toward growth as loving Christian disciples. We welcome ALL teens in high school, regardless of faith background and personal beliefs. EVERYONE is welcome! We offer teens many ways to have fun, grow personally, and spiritually as a direct reflection of Jesus’ heart.

Eden Hang Outs

Stop by our Eden Youth Center on select Wednesdays of the month to hang out with other high school teens. This is a day where you can come hang out and bring friends. We may watch a move, have a board game night, or just hang out. The Eden Center will be open from 7-8:30pm on those evenings. All high school teens are welcome!

Youth Nights

About two Sundays a month, we will have Youth Nights. These nights will begin after the 5:30pm Mass and end at 8pm. These nights will be an opportunity to have fun and learn more about our faith.

Youth Ministry Leadership


We are always looking for teens and adults to assist in our Youth Ministry programs. Whether you are leading a small group during Confirmation, hanging out during Eden Hang Outs, or attending retreats or other events with us; we are always looking for people to partner with us in growing our ministry.

What is J.U.I.C.E. Team?

J.U.I.C.E. stands for Join Us In Christ Eternally!! This team is comprised of teens who have been confirmed and young adults who commit to making the Confirmation and Youth Ministry programs the best they can be. This team comes together to plan the retreats for Confirmation as well as being the small group leaders and speakers on retreat. This team meets on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesdays of the Month for formation and planning. If you are confirmed and want to give back to the Confirmation and Youth Ministry programs then this team might be for you!

How can I help?

If you are a teen who has been confirmed, then the above J.U.I.C.E. Team is for you!

If you are an adult who feels the call to work with young people, then there are a couple of different things you could do to make our ministry grow.

  1. Pray – You can pray for the teens and our ministry.
  2. You can support us by helping us with single events. Driving to a special event or chaperoning a retreat.
  3. You may choose to help us on a regular basis. You can be an adult helper at our Eden Hang Outs, Youth Nights, or Confirmation Session.
  4. You can support the teens by donating so that teens can attend our events who may need monetary help to attend some of our events.

COVID 19 continues to challenge us. we will make decisions based on the directions from the archdiocese, and state and local health guidelines. We will continue to keep the safety of our community a priority and will serve appropriately.
