Youth Group Introduction




Parish Youth Group… is a place for 9-12th grade teens to be with friends and rest in the midst of all that life has to bring.  In a spirit of friendship, prayer and fun; along with great food and an exceptional adult core team, teens are welcome to come and hang out and grow closer to the Lord. 


Check out the calendar to learn more about youth nights and other activities! Be sure you meet us too…the team page has bios on our Core Team and lastly don’t miss the photo section!  We have such a good time!  This is just a small sampling of our chaos! 


Calendar Details


Youth Nights

Youth Nights are on Sundays from 7-9 in the Youth Room – back parking lot at St Bernard, next to the dumpsters…I’m not sure why that is but we try not to take it personally!  These nights are packed with music, prayer, conversation, food and laughter!  Plan to be amazed and amused as you learn more about your faith and yourself.


St Martin de Porres

Our St Martin de Porres Ministry is our ministry that reaches out to people who are homeless.  On every 4th Friday of the month and on the 1st Friday of the odd months, we make a full meal and bagged lunches and take them to the Boulevard of the Allies to serve them to those in the greatest need in our city.  All teens are welcome to join us afterschool to make sandwiches and help with other donations.  11th and 12th graders are invited to join us in the ministry serving on the street.

Mission Week


Mission Week is an incredible week out of the year.  In 2019 it will be the week of June 16-21, 2019.  We will be working in Lawrence County, PA.


We stay at the SNPJ Recreation Center in Enon Valley.  The teens will be bused there and bused home. 


Each day is filled with work, prayer, awesome food and fun, Mass, great talks and time with your friends.  It’s an incredible experience of faith, fun and friendship and what it means to serve in the name of the Lord!
