Why I work in Youth Ministry: To
love and serve young people so that I may walk with them on their journey of
faith. I also strive to equip other adults to do the same and to create new
opportunities for the young people in the parish.
About Me: It all centers on Jesus Christ and His Church. To work for the
Church has been a tremendous blessing, and to be an adopted son of God has been
the greatest adventure.
