The Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) provides opportunities for the young people of our parish together, grow in friendship, develop leadership skills, share their faith, and reach out to others in need. The CYO is built around a four phase model of youth ministry: Athletic, Social, Service, and Spiritual – and involves youth from grades K-12 in a variety of activities related to these areas. The program is divided into three areas: athletics, junior high, and high school. These areas interact to enhance the sense of community. The emphasis of the CYO is to enable and empower our youth to become responsible participants in our faith community.
