High School Youth Ministry

The St. Matthew Youth Ministry Team is committed to providing our teens with the best possible opportunities for personal and spiritual growth through catechesis (religious education), fellowship, service, outreach and leadership.


The Mass        Sundays at 5:30 pm


At the Sunday 5:30 pm Mass, teens and their families are invited to experience the depth of God’s love through the Word, the community and the Eucharist. All teens are welcomed to sit as a community in one section, and are encouraged to participate as lectors, ushers and extraordinary ministers of holy Communion.


Life Nights       Sundays, 6:30 to 8:30 pm            Parish Center Family Room

Offered throughout the year, these nights provide a time for dinner and faith sharing. It is the perfect way to jump start your school week, or wind down a week of summer. Each series of nights mixes social, spiritual and service opportunities. For more information, email Daniel Torres.


RCIA for Teens  Mondays, 6:45 to 8:15 pm          Parish Center Youth Room

This class is for teens coming into the Church who have not yet received all the Sacraments of Initiation and those who have not been enrolled in Faith Formation for an extended period of time. Through a relaxed, small group setting, we discover the teachings of the Catholic Church, what it means to live your life as a Catholic Christian, and the beauty and tradition of the faith. Teens in this program begin classes in September and receive their sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass. Please email Diane Kiradjieff.

Share your faith with the children and youth of our parish. Click here to register to serve as a peer minister of teen classroom catechist.
