OLA Youth Ministry is leading students to a passionate and authentic relationship with Jesus Christ in the Catholic Church. It has been said that you make an impression on someone from a distance, but in order to make an influence on someone, you must get close. OLA Youth Ministry is a group of adults who are willing to get up close and personal with teenagers in order to influence them in their walk with Jesus Christ. It doesn’t matter what grade you’re in or what you think about God. Whether you like large groups, small groups, adoration or service projects, we’ve got some way for you to encounter Christ and grow in your faith. Come and join us for 5:15 p.m. Mass Sundays, Bible Study on Tuesdays 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in the Youth Room. Sign up for Confirmation or join the Peer Leadership Team.
