Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry

An easy way to support our youth groups at St. Mary's: save your bottles and cans and turn them in at the bottle redemption center on Downer St. in Tops plaza. Let them know you want to donate to St. Mary's Youth Groups. As always, thank you for your support!


Here at St. Mary's, we have a Youth Group for every age, starting with Pre-K!

Peanut Butter Club

For Pre-K through 2nd grade. We meet 6:00pm to 7:00pm every Wednesday evening.  The group, each week, will include games, a short talk on our faith and conclude with a craft.

If you are interested, we are always looking for interested parents as well as parents who might be willing to volunteer (must have completed VIRTUS training). Please contact John Sheridan by sending an email to
