Youth Ministry


Youth Ministry in the Diocese of Rochester embraces a comprehensive and multifaceted approach that utilizes the gifts of the entire faith community to minister to, with, by and for young people in grades 6-12. Our goals reflect those outlined by the U.S. Bishops in the 1997 document, Renewing the Vision:

To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in the world today.

To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.

To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
