Due to the changing nature of social protocols and precautions surrounding the coronavirus, our
youth group structure is subject to change throughout the year to best serve the needs of our teens
while also protecting their health and safety.
We will begin the year with small, weekly, discipleship groups that will meet at different times throughout the week, beginning the week of

In-person 10th Grade Girls:
In-person 10th, 11th & 12th Grade Guys:

We will reevaluate later in the fall what works best for the spring semester.
All updates will be sent to registered parents and published on our website and social media pages.
Creating a safe environment for your teens to grow in their faith is always our first priority. Each of the members of our mentor team must complete a background check, a diocesan approved VIRTUS safe environment training, and a parish volunteer application. Because of the risk the coronavirus poses to our teens and the desire to make as many families as possible comfortable with participating, we will enforce the diocesan guidelines for small group settings, including: wearing masks, spacing out teens, and minimizing the number of teens gathered in our Youth Center at a time.
During a time of economic hardship across the nation, we do not want a registration fee to exclude any family from participating in our ministry.
Participating in a community is more important now than ever for teens, and we value your teen's presence far more than a monetary offering. All are always welcome in our program.
Nonetheless, our program relies on registration fees and donations to purchase supplies, subscribe to expensive curriculum, and contribute to facility and parish costs that go into making each youth group meeting the best experience it can be for your teen. Additionally, we want each family to be invested in this ministry as we build the community together throughout the year.
Last year's youth group fee was $80 per person. This year, we are lowering the registration fee to $50 per person.
We ask each family to prayerfully consider what they can give to our program for their teen's registration fee. If it is strenous for your family to pay the full registration fee for each child this year, please still register and consider donating an amount that is reasonable for your family situation at this time. Additionally, if your family can offer more to help support our program, your prayerful consideration is deeply appreciated.
If you would like to pay in multiple installments, please email Kat (
You can pay online by following the square link on our website or given after submitting. Or, you can mail or drop off a check or cash to our pastoral center made payable to SAINT ANDREW YOUTH MINISTRY.
Please be assured of our prayers for your teen and your family as we head into this new and uncertain season, trusting in the Lord's goodness and providence through it all. We also ask that you pray for us as we tune our hearts and ears to the Holy Spirit in discernment of how to best serve this wonderful community.
God has big plans for this year, and we are excited to accompany your family in your teen's continuing faith journey!
