Youth & Young Adult - UnI Lord
UnI Lord Ministry came from the idea for the next generation of our Catholic faith to have a strong relationship with our Lord. The name speaks for itself: UnI Lord: You and I, Lord. Our Ministry focuses on You and the Lord and gather to promote the teachings of our Catholic faith through community involvement (service), worship and praise.
The UnI Lord Ministry is an umbrella for both the youth and young adults at St. Victor. The Youth Ministry are for those ages 13 to 18 years of age (or for students in 8th to 12th grade) and the Young Adult Ministry (YAM) are for adults ages 18 to 40 years old. These age brackets are guidelines for individuals, so we invite any interested Catholics to partake in the many activities that both ministries encompass. Youth & Young Adult (Y&YA) Ministry offer opportunities separately as well as combined. Below is more information about each ministry.
Students a part of our Youth Ministry have the opportunity to find companionship in each other through service opportunities while serving the St. Victor Parish and neighborhood. We pray and worship together as many students involved in this ministry are enrolled in our Catechetical Ministry classes in the Junior High, Confirmation 1 and Confirmation 2 classes. We are visible at our 5:00 pm Sunday mass (held during the months of September – June) as students are represented in the Youth & Young Adult Choir and as Ushers. Youth Ministry is also involved with donating bagged lunches to Loaves & Fishes, holding an annual bake sale in order to adopt a family during the Christmas season through St. Vincent de Paul, being active at Walk For Life (a walk to help stop abortion) West Coast held in San Francisco, CA, holding a Coat Drive for Sacred Heart Community Service as well as holding a Spaghetti Dinner fund raiser. There is no limit for the participation that the Youth Ministry will become involved in.
For all students participating in any activity offsite from St. Victor Parish, a permission slip is always required. Click here for a permission slip.
