Our Mission: VENTURE to meet teens where they are


Not many know what we really do and some may be apprehensive about encouraging their teens so we want to send this message:

To our faithful parish and Bayshore Community, your support of our fundraisers and activities make evenings like this possible. Bringing back and implementing ideas and advice from a 2 day youth ministry boot camp, our team of leaders is dedicating themselves to bring your teens on a journey living a life of faith built on respect, meeting each teen where he or she is at in life.

Tonight's meeting with walking tacos gave us an opportunity to share the passion we have for this group. The central focus was built around being who God has called us to be. Removing the masks we sometimes use to hide our inner self. Each was reminded that as part of this group they are called to enter our room being who they genuinely are, removing the masks that sometime they have in different groups and situations. With sports, school, honor societies, extra curricular events, activities and more there is so much pressure on the youth today to always have their A Game and not enough time to really self-reflect on who they really are.

VENTURE is a Youth Group with a mission to build a community of teens who have fun in a social setting, while putting their faith into action with a life of respect. ALL TEENS are invited to our events and activities, no matter where they are on life's journey, they are welcome here. We are thankful to call St. Catherine's our home and blessed to have the support of our pastor, Fr. Dan, and Parish Community. You are always welcome to get ask about gettinf involved yourself by not only donating time or resources, but especially by praying for our ministry and encouraging your teens to be involved also!
