Catholic Youth Ministry (CYM)


To assist parents in forming their children to become lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ. We wish to empower our young people to live as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ by drawing them into active participation in the life and mission of the Catholic Church. The eight components of Catholic youth ministry are constantly incorporated: advocacy, catechesis, community life, evangelization, justice and service, leadership development, pastoral care, and prayer and worship.


The High School Catholic Youth Ministry (CYM) meets every Wednesday from 8-9:30 pm in Assisi Hall. Teens encounter Christ through the Eucharist in our monthly Holy Hour and Benediction, through various guest speakers who are on fire for their Catholic faith, and through fellowship with one another in sports and games. SFA high school youth also have the opportunity to attend various retreats and conferences throughout the year, such as the Diocesan Catholic Youth Conference (DCYC), Prayer and Action, March for Life, Teens Encounter Christ (TEC), Steubenville Conferences and Totus Tuus retreats.
