More Information about Youth Ministry and Quest

Here at St. Francis Xavier Parish, we are excited about our ministry to our high school-aged parishioners. There are two programs for the teens, Youth Ministry and Quest.

Youth Ministry is open to ALL high school-aged parishioners and is facilitated through the efforts of many people. Jenette, the Coordinator of Youth Ministry, along with many parents and adult volunteers work to provide opportunities for our youth to grow in their faith, serve the community, and of course have some fun through the monthly youth ministry nights, small groups, church league basketball, and mission trips. All high school-aged teens are also encouraged to actively participate in any the 5:00pm Sunday teen Mass. Contact Jenette Teran with any further question at jteran@sfxlg.org.

Quest is the Confirmation preparation program here at St. Francis. This is open to any high school-aged parishioner who has not yet been confirmed. Students involved with Quest are still invited to attend all other youth ministry events. More information about Quest is found on the Quest/Confirmation Preparation tab. Contact Elis Guidice with any further questions at eguidice@sfxlg.org.
