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  youth through a variety of opportunities and gatherings.  
 
Teen ministry at St. Dominic’s is multidimensional, aiming to encompass the diversity and individual spiritual development of teens while recognizing that discipleship is expressed in many ways.  
 
All are welcome ~ we hope to see you at one of our gatherings.
 
 
 
 
 
Mission Statement  
 
To encourage the youth of St. Dominic’s to explore and deepen their Catholic faith.  
With the help of the Holy Spirit, youth are encouraged and empowered to live their faith through meaningful activities and evangelization, all in a welcoming environment.
