Welcome to St. Patrick Youth Ministry! 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:
Empowerment – To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
Participation – To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
Growth – To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
Traditionally, SPY has done many different activities. We are a social and service group exploring ways to deepen our faith as we strive to live lives as disciples. We have done many different activities that we hope to return to soon! Here are some of them: Overnight Retreats, Movie Nights, Game Nights, Bowling, Joint Meetings with other Youth Groups, Soccer Games, Orlando Magic game, Ice skating, and for those interested in stretching themselves we attend a mission trip in the summer and every other year attend the National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The St. Patrick Peer Leader Group is a group of older high school youth who engage our younger students in many activities as well as acting as Small Group Leaders at the Confirmation Retreat.
Are you interested in joining SPY?
During the 2020-2021 school year, St. Patrick Youth will meet on Sundays using a small group model. We will meet following 10:30 mass in the pavilion behind the church. For inside activities we will gather in the Church (which is sanitized twice daily) High School will meet on the first and third Sundays and Middle School will meet on the second and fourth Sundays. For most meetings we are back to meeting in the Youth Room which is upstairs in Shepherd’s Gate
We need a liability waiver on file for each student attending SPY: Liability Waiver Orlando Diocese On-Site
