Welcome to St. Dominic’s Teen~Youth Ministries
 
 
St. Dominic’s is blessed with a diverse population of generous and inquisitive teens.  Recognizing that there is no one program or activity that nurtures young people to live as intentional disciples of Christ, we seek to transform the hearts of our youth through a variety of opportunities and gatherings.  
 
Teen ministry at St. Dominic’s strives to be multidimensional, aiming to encompass the diversity and individual spiritual development of our youth while recognizing that discipleship is expressed in many ways.  All are welcome ~ we hope to see you at one of our gatherings.
 
 
COMPREHENSIVE YOUTH MINISTRY ENCOMPASSES THE FOLLOWING CHURCH MINISTRIES:
 

ADVOCACY ~ CATECHESIS ~ COMMUNITY LIFE ~ EVANGELIZATION 

JUSTICE & SERVICE ~ LEADERSHIP ~ PASTORAL CARE ~ PRAYER & WORSHIP
