Welcome to St. Patrick Youth Ministry!  Our ministry is fluid and ever changing, just as the young people we serve.  St. Patrick Youth Group is a service and social group.  We follow the goals of Renewing the Vision as set forth by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Peer leaders –  We will meet after the High School Meeting on September 16th from 5:00 – 6:00 pm.  This meeting is for peer leaders who have already gone through peer leader training.  Peer leaders will regularly meet after the high school meetings from 5:00 – 6:00 pm to support ongoing training and fellowship.

I arise today
Through God's strength:
God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, God's host to save me

Christ to shield me today
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
