Youth ministry forms a vital part of Holy Spirit Parish Newman Center. We firmly believe that God calls all people into relationship, and Jesus was clear that this extended to the children. Our programs and events for youth are designed specifically for each age group to present the faith in a relevant, faithful, and inspiring way. All ministers and volunteers working with youth complete background checks, personal interviews, and are VIRTUS Safe Environment certified.
Programs for Pre-K focus on basic knowledge of the faith and self-expression of the relationship with Christ. Elementary age children are able to understand the basics of the faith and make positive choices in regard to morals and prayer practices. Programs combine catechesis, spiritual activities, and social events. Middle and high school students are able to question the faith and engage it from a place of honest inquiry. Our programs for this age group focus on the exploration of the faith, apologetics, and enabling spiritual encounters.
