Welcome to St. Hilary Youth Ministry
Leading Our Youth Closer to Christ
Under the guidance of Fr. Matthew Jordan, St. Hilary is excited to welcome you to Life Teen and EDGE! Join us for Sunday Mass at 5:30 p.m.
Life Teen strengthens our teens’ Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church. Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church.
Edge helps middle schoolers unleash who they were created to be, in Christ. Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. Edge resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth.
Parents and interested parishioners with a variety of gifts and talents are needed to minister to our teens through the Alive Ministry Youth Program!
