Youth Ministry

Welcome!

Life isn’t always easy. Often we are just looking for a place to belong, to be understood, and to be loved. This is the Catholic Church and this is what we hope our programs are for the youth of St. Thomas More Parish!
 
Take a look below at all the programs as there are ways for everyone to get involved.
 
If you are 18+, check out our young adult page for more information about programs and ways to volunteer!
 
I myself grew up in St. Thomas More Parish, but didn’t get involved with anything in the Parish until I was 20 years old. Once I took the leap of faith, my life changed… definitely for the better, because now I get to be the youth minister here!
If you have any questions or just want to chat send me an email: youth@stmparish.com or call me at the office: 780-434-6313 ext 223
 
God Bless,

K4J is a program that motivates children ages 6 – 9 years old to live virtue and love through their Catholic faith. We meet once a month to discuss our Virtue of the Month, Our Saint of the Month, and learn about our Catholic faith through games, skits, crafts, and song. We are then encouraged throughout the rest of the month at home with our take-home-packs.
Cost: $50/child
 
This program is run with the great help of our parents and other adult volunteers. For more information look at the K4J Brochure or please contact Monica at the parish office

Want to help and Volunteer?

We’re always looking for volunteers to come and help! Whether that be with little jobs on Thursday afternoons, for assisting in events surrounding the Mass, Confirmation, for youth groups or for any other activity! When I say that we need volunteers from 10 years up to 100 years old… I really mean it! We are all called to be disciples of Christ and share the gifts that we’ve been given by God. So whatever way you can do to become a bigger part of the ministry of this Church, we want you to be able to help! 
 
Please contact Sara at the Parish office to discuss where you can best serve!
