Keep College Students Connected!

College students get connected to CYMHave you a son or daughter attending college out of the local area?

Catholic Youth Ministries would love to keep them connected to the Catholic community by updating them on college ministry opportunities like retreats, school break get-togethers, mission trips and service but also sending them “care” packages of prayers and encouragement.

Email with your son or daughter’s name, email address, school mailing address, and contact number

so they can receive our information and quarterly “pick me up”.  If you would like to help with the care packages by donating items or postage, contact Sandy at our office.

Call our office, 812-923-8355 if you have questions.
