Our mission is to connect adolescents and young adults to a living relationship with Jesus Christ in their Catholic faith.

We accomplish this through:

  • Services to parish leadership
  • Fostering parish and community collaboration in youth ministry
  • Ministry to youth and young adults
I have worked closely with Catholic Youth Ministries in the New Albany Deanery over my 23 years in ministry.

In my early years as a new youth minister, they offered the training and advice I needed to establish a vibrant youth ministry program in my parish. Over the years they have offered an excellent retreat program for our youth and continued to mentor me in my role at the parish.

Now we have a great partnership in which we work together to provide opportunities for our youth and young adults to grow in their relationship with Christ and His Church.

Catholic Youth Ministries is a blessing to our Deanery and to the people it serves.
