Youth Ministry

“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”

Matthew 28:18-19

 Old St. Mary’s is renewing and reimagining its ministry to the young people of our parish family.  We remain dedicated to serving and ministering our adolescent youth; recognizing their special needs and the valuable contributions they make to our parish family and parish life.

In the coming months you will see increased opportunities as we begin to reimagine how we welcome and serve the youth.  We will be seeking involvement of the wider parish and young people to help articulate a vision for our parish youth ministry and begin to offer increased opportunities for them to gather and grow as young disciples. If you have any questions or want to learn more contact Maryellen Harrington, Dir. Of Lifelong Faith Formation at
