About

Youth Group is our group for middle and high school aged youth that meets regularly to come together and grow in a relationship with Jesus, friends, our parish, the Catholic Church, and the local community. Led by Ryan Adamson and The Youth Ministry Volunteer Team, teens will experience opportunities for close friendships, deep experiences with God, and connection to the parish community. Youth Group events are designed to fuel our teen’s souls and build for themselves a foundation for their lives they can always count on. These events are free though sometimes teens will be asked to bring specified items to an event.

Registration

Families are asked to register their teens for free below. This allows us to communicate regularly and in case of emergencies. This registration is applied to all MBSP Youth Ministry events.

Location: The Parish Center

When looking at the church building at the intersection of Castlewood and Bellevue, the Parish Center is to the left past the older school building. There is a sign near the street showing the name of the building. The Parish center was once a convent for sisters, then a preschool, and now our Parish offices and “The Upper Room” where Youth Group is located. An exact Google Maps pin for the building is provided below.

Location: The Donnelly Neighborhood Center

The Donnelly Neighborhood Center is located right next to Close Park along Bellevue Road. The Center is home to our school, gym, kitchen, and Kelly Room.

Volunteering

The Youth Ministry Adult Leadership Team, is a group called “The Core Team”, and is a group of weekly volunteers led by Ryan Adamson that provide regular events for teens to come together and grow in their relationship with Jesus, friends, our parish, the Catholic Church, and the local community. The Core Team is directly responsible for cultivating a hospitable environment and facilitating dinner, games, talks, small group conversations, prayer experiences, and when able service projects. These youth group nights are designed to fuel our teen’s souls for the week ahead and build for themselves a foundation for their lives they can always count on. 

If you’re 18 or older, have a relationship with Jesus, like being Catholic, like teenagers, and have a desire to pass on what was given to you or provide what you wish you had, Ryan Adamson would love to hear from you. This is an amazing opportunity to make an impact on the youth of our parish and community and help set them up with a foundation of faith that will influence the rest of their lives.

All volunteers must pass a background check and complete the online VIRTUS training.
