Our teenagers in High School today are bombarded with all kinds of messages from the world around them and are trying hard to stay connected to their faith. How can you use your talents to help them?
Below are some of the roles you can take on to help the youth ministry program here at St Mary's:
Core Team Member
If you would like to share your passion for being Catholic with our youth, are good with leading small groups and have time every Sunday night from 5 pm to 8 pm, then being on the Core Team might be for you.
Our core team currently consists of mostly young adults. We are passionate about our faith, but we know that this parish has many members who have years of experience on us in living out their faith. If that is you, and you would like to guide and support our core team, you can be part of our core support. Your time commitment will be monthly.
Our Confirmation Retreat is on January 12, 2013. We will soon begin the process of planning for it. If you can make it on this day long retreat and make time for 3-4 meetings between now and January 12, consider being on our retreat team.
If you are good with words, we would like your help in writing up weekly bulletin entries, website / blog entries and event descriptions.
Web Site Updater
If you have a talent in web design or have the time to devote to updating the WAV and Confirmation page on the St Mary's website then this is for you!
Social Media Manager
Facebook, Twitter etc, are a large part of our lives today and a great way to get out the word about regular meetings and special events. If you are good with social media, come on board!
A picture is worth a thousand words. We need someone to help illustrate our weekly themes and design T-Shirts for retreats and events. If graphic design is your talent, sign up to share that with us today!
If you are good at Marketing, we would welcome your help when we need to get the word out about special event and even to market our regular WAV meetings.
We need someone to capture the fun we have at every WAV meeting and various events we might attend. If this is your area, you are welcome to join the team as our photographer/videographer.
We have dinner for our teens at every WAV meeting. If would like to cook or bring a main dish, salad or dessert for our teens at one of our WAV meeting we would greatly appreciate your help!
If smart shopping is your talent (yes, it is a valid talent) and you know how to find the best deals, we will need you when we need to pick up large amounts of items for the program.
Our teens need prayer. If you are unable to help with anything else above, you are called to help our teens with your prayers. Say a special prayer for our teens at St Mary's whenever you say your daily prayers, whenever you say the rosary or attend Mass. We will be very grateful for your support!
