Our Lady of the Fields places youth ministry as a central focus of our evangelization efforts. Knowing the importance of young people in our Church as the Church of NOW and of the FUTURE, we desire to create a safe environment for young people to come alive in Christ. The true pathway to holiness and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is discovering the truth of our humanity, our longing for Jesus and the need for us to seek our fulfillment in Him.
Ultimately, we desire to lead young people to Jesus Christ through the Sacramental life of the Church, the wellspring of life, peace, happiness and fulfillment.
Youth Ministry at Our Lady of the Fields consists of many people collaborating, praying, and working behind the scenes to discover how the Lord is leading us to lead young people closer to Him. These are adults, who, feeling called by God, are committed to leading young people to Christ.
Through Youth Ministry efforts we hope to:
- Grow disciples of Jesus Christ by fostering and engaging the individual growth (spiritually, intellectually, physically, and emotionally) of each young person so they can embrace Jesus Christ and a life in the community that He founded: the Catholic Church.
- Teach our young people spiritual tools through formation, fellowship, the sacramental life of the Church, and outreach that will help them deepen their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and seek Him in their everyday lives in order to be disciples in the modern world.
- Create a culture in which young people can thrive and become servant leaders of Jesus Christ in our parish community, their families and social lives, not simply at Youth Ministry gatherings.
