Youth Minister Julie Schmidt
 welcomes you to the
Senior High Youth Ministry page!

Senior High Youth in the community are invited to participate with students from area schools in the St. Joseph, St. Donatus, SS. Peter And Paul, St. Catherine Youth Group! Come check it out!


The Youth Group is a parish-based program designed to allow youth an opportunity to grow in their faith through participation in masses, service, and youth rallies. We are a growing group and are having a lot of fun and great experiences! Each month the Youth Group meets in the basement of the St. Joseph rectory for faith sharing and fun.

The Youth Group also participates in one service project and one fun activity monthly. We have have sent big groups to NCYC!

Please contact Youth Minister Julie Schmidt to get involved (563-495-4596).
