The Parish of Christ the King youth ministry is committed to the reality that young people are an important and integral part of our parish community. The youth program seeks to foster maturation in faith of the youth of our parish.

We hope to affirm the gifts of our youth and help foster opportunities for these young people to share their gifts with the larger community. The spiritual and social needs of our youth are to be met with the committed leadership, guidance and support of our parish adults. The adults and youth of our parish are therefore provided with the opportunity to grow together in Christian faith.

Through a variety of programs, events and outreach, we seek to draw young people into responsible participation in the life, work and mission of the parish community.We believe this ministry is for young people and will be a blessing for the entire community.

Welcome to Christ the King Youth Ministry

Discipleship, community, mission and worship are what we are all about. Our youth ministry exists to expose teenagers to God’s love. Through weekly, monthly and special events, we will strive to form a Christ centered community where fellowship is shared through regularly
scheduled social events and faith journey. While youth ministry directly serves the youth of our parish from grades seven through high school, we will strive to work in community with the entire parish. I look forward to working with such an enthusiastic group of individuals!

YM Annual Christmas Party





The annual Christmas party began with a special focus on prayer for the community of St. Rose of Lima Parish in Newtown Connecticut.  After reading a letter detailing their need for prayers and Christmas cards as they endure this difficult time of healing, we prayed and wrote cards and notes of support.  In addition to the notes, the youth ministry teens made crafts and Christmas ornaments that became part of a package sent out to the Connecticut parish youth group community which is
expected to arrive at their location on Christmas Eve.  Included with the handwritten notes were photos of the group, the parish and a printed page from our website.

The night also included our annual Letters to Santa campaign.  The students helped Santa reply to the children of the parish who sentletters to him.

The service portion of the evening was followed by a night of indoor volleyball, Just Dance Wii games, cookie swap, refreshments and our annual good natured Yankee Swap.  Even Santa got in on the swap this year!

A great time was had by all!

C.L.I. seeks to foster the leadership potential of young men and women and to heighten each young person’s awareness of leadership and ministerial roles and responsibilities in the parish and high school setting.
