Youth Ministry


If you have a student going off to college soon, please stop by the YM Office and give us their information so that we can send them goodies during the year. Forms are on the wall outside Diane’s office. The various church ministries at St. Jude generously provide items for us to send students to let them know we care and that we keep them in our thoughts and prayers while they are away at school.

Interested in hosting a NET Team Member?

NET traveling and parish team members all spend a year away from their own families to share their faith with young Catholics across the country. They can end up in a different city every night, and “host families” are the vital part of NET Ministries that care for teams while they’re away from home.

Host families provide a place for team members to eat, pray and rest their heads each night, and many team members cite an experience at a host home as one of their favorite memories from the road. Many families welcome NET teams into their homes year after year, and stay in touch with the team members even after their time with NET has finished.

Host families do not need to worry about having enough beds for the team members they host. Every team member has his or her own sleeping bag and pillow, so floors, couches, or air mattresses work just fine.

When applying to host members of a NET team, host families can request men or women, and in quantities from 2-7.
