Youth

Youth Ministry

"I have seen enough evidence to be unshakably convinced that no difficulty, no fear is so great that it can completely suffocate the hope that springs eternal in the hearts of the young. You are our hope, the young are our hope.

Do not let that hope die! Stake your lives on it! We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father's love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son."

-Pope St. John Paul II

 
Our Mission:
Leading the youth of St. Apollinaris to know, love, and serve God.

Vacation Bible School

This is a week long event designed for students grades K-5.  Its goal is make a place where students can encounter  Christ, to create a change in their hearts, and to give them opportunities to share God's love with others.  This is a program led by an amazing group of teenagers and adults in our parish!

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL— JUNE 19-23
The theme for this year's VBS is Maker Fun Factory where we will learn that we were created by God and built for a purpose. It will take place from June 19-23rd from 9-Noon each day. Those entering K-6 grade are participants. Those entering 7th and up are considered volunteers. It is $35 per participant and $60 per family. We are looking for middle school, high school, and adult helpers with the various roles. We will also be putting together a team to build the sets starting in May.
