Welcome to Youth Ministry
Saint Kateri is a community that empowers the young people of today to be the leaders of our church now and in the future!
Join us for a one-time experience or come every time!
Through small groups, leadership development, retreats, service projects, CYO athletics, and many other fun opportunities, teens explore their faith, build friendships, and grow closer to God.
The Service Project
Here, at Saint Kateri, serving others is part of who we are, not just something good to do. We call our service ministries ‘the service project’ because it is ongoing, open to all, and helps to develop skills in our young people that last a lifetime. Some of our service partners are Bethany House, St. Joseph's House of Hospitality, House of Mercy, and more.
Peer Ministry Team
Our peer ministry team designs, directs, and implements many of our youth ministry opportunities, as well as, engages in parish-wide and community initiatives.
A peer minister is someone with strong faith, a desire to build skills and relationships, and has an openness and willingness to grow and lead others.
Current 9-12th graders are encouraged to consider joining our team.
Confirmation preparation is a dynamic, project-based process that includes community building, formation in theology, service opportunities, annual retreat, Mass attendance, parent/sponsor sessions.
Under our Diocesan Policy, Catholic and Public School youth who are in grade 8 and up can begin the two year process to prepare for Confirmation.
CYO Athletics is a ministry of Saint Kateri Parish in collaboration with the Diocese of Rochester Department of Evangelization and Catechesis. At Saint Kateri we promote CYO athletics as a way for our young people to practice good sportsmanship on and off the court/field. It is part of our mission of welcoming all people to "Be Christ to the World."
CYO Soccer is for girls and boys in grades 3-6.
CYO Basketball is for girls and boys in grades 3-12.
