“For I know well the plans I have in mind for you – oracle of the LORD – plans
for your welfare and not for woe,
so as to give you a future of hope.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Summer Camps, SHYCON, Scouting, & More!

Welcome to the office of Youth Ministry. This office not only administers various youth outreach programs, but also oversees Religious Education and Sacramental Preparation/Confirmation process.

Youth Ministry helps the younger generation engage with their Catholic faith through hands-on, fun-filled programs, like Camp Zacchaeus, Camp Timoth, and the Senior High Youth Conference (SHYCON).  For more information about any of the above ministries, please contact:


Mrs. Francine Swope
Youth Ministry Coordinator

Camp Timothy and Camp Zacchaeus 2020 will be held virtually on diocesan social media. MORE

Senior High Youth Conference (SHYCON) provides students with a day full of fun events and experience in helping those in need.

Each year, SHYCON shows our youth the importance of helping others through working with the Rise Against Hunger organization. At SHYCON 2018, 850 teens packaged 30,000 meals for people in the United States and around the world, learning the importance of helping people in need.
