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 Marianne Cope


St. Marianne Cope was born in Germany in 1838, but moved to New York at the age of 2. Our Saint-to-be worked in a factory until 1862, when she decided to join the Sisters of the Third Order of Saint Francis. She ministered in local schools and hospitals for a number of years before being elected Provincial in 1877. In 1883, she and a number of her Sisters responded to the Hawaiian government’s request for a religious order to come run a Receiving Station for those suspected of having leprosy. They also opened a hospital, a school for girls, and a home for “unprotected women and girls.” She later took charge of Fr. Damien’s home for men and boys. One of her main contributions was introducing cleanliness, pride, and fun to the leper colony, a rarity during that time. She often outfitted the women with bright scarves and pretty dresses! She died in August of 1918 after a long live spent helping others.

St. Marianne Cope, pray for us!
