COVID-19 threw church ministries a curve ball this past spring. But we are looking ahead to the fall and getting ready for some virtual fun and dynamic programming for the high school youth. The Branches Youth Ministry will still be present at St. Raymond. For those that have been in Branches, there are a few changes. These changes build upon the solid foundation developed over the last 30 years through the lay leaders. One important aspect that will not change, is mentors engaging teens in small group discussion. We recognize the impact of a small group gathering to delve deeper into our faith and offer space to explore. The team will be using new resources to continue leading our teens towards an encounter Christ and connect them to the larger Church. They will explore their faith, grow in friendships,  discuss relevant topics, and find belonging in the Church. Ultimately, equipping them to face the joys and challenges of life while being convicted in their Catholic faith as they become young adults.
