ABIDE Youth Ministry

Welcome Teens!

All youth are invited to be a part of Abide Youth Ministry, the new partenership formed with St. Isaac Jogues and Notre Dame. Together with Young Life we serve the youth in our area. By combining the St. Isaac’s, Notre Dame and Young Life outreach to youth our hope is that every young person can be a part of a faith community and grow their relationship with Jesus.

~ Empower teens to live as disciples of Jesus
~ Support and provide for their participation in the life, mission, and work of our faith community
~ Foster their personal and spiritual growth
