Youth Ministry Mission Statement
The mission of our Youth Ministry Programs is to connect, nurture and sustain families through engaging, relevant, and age-appropriate youth and family ministry programming. We accomplish this by learning about our families’ needs, concerns and challenges. We respond to these needs with a strategy that is informed by their participation and our Faith. In this way, our programs integrate our youth and families in to the life of our community and our Faith.
Youth Ministry Vision Statement
Through effective, vibrant ministry our families will grow to live Christ-centered, healthier, happier, and fulfilling lives.
Development Project News
As the start of our ministry year approaches, we now will begin to turn our focus to putting our plan for the year into action. As with our meetings, we will need everyone’s assistance in order to make our hopes and aspirations for our children and our community a reality. We now, amongst ourselves and in our wider community, need to turn out focus to organizing our leadership for these ministries.
If you have not yet had an opportunity to join us for a Youth Ministry Planning Meeting, please join us for two upcoming meetings!

Ministry Program Discussion
How to Build Institutional Memory
From the discussion in our last meeting on June 14th we have drafted a tentative Youth Ministry Calendar for the 2018 - 2019 year. We are pleased to announce that this calendar is now available for review online. Simply click forward to September to begin tentative viewing events month-by-month throughout the coming year.
Please take some time to review the calendar! You can view tentative meetings and events for the 2018 - 2019 ministry year. If you'd like to contribute any feedback, thoughts or ideas, please contact Fr. Nick. You are also welcome to attend our next meeting!
This past evening as planned we talked about the 2018 - 2019 ministerial year in very broad terms, and worked to solve a few key issues.
Scheduling Weekly Ministry Meetings
Scheduling Monthly Events and Activities
How will weekly ministry meetings and monthly events serve the life of our community
Please find the attached presentation for this evening which will help to guide our calendar discussion. We will be having a very broad discussion this evening about how and when we will schedule ministry meetings and events. We will workshop two typical months in our ministerial life at Taxiarchae, and discuss developing a weekly and monthly ministry schedule that can work year-round (accommodating Lenten schedules, etc).
