Our Youth Ministry program, the Next Generation of Disciples (NGD), seeks to bring teens to closer relationship with Christ through fellowship, fun activities, and faith-building. Our program incorporates weekly meetings, service opportunities, and parish involvement. We welcome all high schoolers, regardless of their level of experience with Catholicism. Christ opened His arms for any who would come to Him, and so do we.

Saint of the Week

Saint Francis of Paola


St. Francis of Paola was a man who wouldn’t have minded a quarantine one bit. In fact, he was a hermit! Born in 1416, Francis went on a pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi as a teenager and soon began a life of contemplative prayer in a cave near Paola. His way of life attracted followers, and thus began the Hermits of St. Francis of Assisi (later renamed the Minims, to show their minority). Francis encouraged the Minims to practice constant humility, even imposing a vow of perpetual Lenten fast on them. While he and his order were reclusive, he often spoke out against corrupt rulers in Europe where he found them. He died in 1507. Saint Francis of Paola, pray for us!
