High School Youth Minsitry

St. Joseph’s brings you YDisciple! A small group study for all High School Students 9th -12th grade! What is YDisciple? It is an apprenticeship to the Christian Life! It is not a program! It is designed provide an environment that allows the teen to grow in their faith!

How does YDisciple do this for the teens of St. Joseph’s, St. Paul’s and St. Mary’s?

  • Train and equip adults to disciple teens
  • Connect teens with caring, faith-filled adults who can apprentice them in the disciplines of a disciple
  • Draw teens out of the crowd into an environment where they can be known and cared for
  • Share and teach in a small group setting where testimony, discussion, and faith sharing can take place
  • Support parishes with resources to grow in their faith and share their faith with teenagers
  • Provide quality content so adult leaders can effectively introduce and explore topics of the faith
  • Mobilize as many adults as possible to mentor teens through a user-friendly online platform

How does this work?

  • Small groups meet weekly outside of a classroom setting with two small group leaders
  • Teens decide a time and place to meet. Groups can meet at coffee shops, the Newman Center, teen’s houses, restaurants, etc.
  • Teens can join a small group or create their own - friends are welcome to join
  • Sessions consist of activities, videos, discussion, faith sharing, prayer and more
  • Personal growth in your own faith.
  • Large group activities & events.
  • All small group leaders are trained by the parish liaison at the Youth Office, and successfully complete all diocesan Safe Environment protocol
