Prymer Youth Ministry
meetings occur on Sundays from 7:30 - 9:00pm in the parish hall following the 6:30pm Youth mass. Prymer gives teens an opportunity to explore their faith, learn in community, and serve. We hope and pray to help ignite the flame of faith in the lives of our teens, so that they can lead faith-filled lives.
At the 6:30pm mass, teens are welcome to sit together in the first few pews, for the 'up, close, and personal' experience of our Catholic worship. They can also serve at the mass in the capacity of Lectors, Collections, Altar Servers, Choir, and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (for those already confirmed).
Unity Days occur once a month. All of our Youth Ministry
entities (EDGE, Prymer, Confirmation) for a day of spirit and fellowship. Teams or Unity as they are called, compete in fun activities like Dodgeball or Relay Races, and they build bonds of friendships and community as young people. They happen usually on the last Sunday of the month, in lieu of the regular Prymer session on that evening.
4. **Confirmation 2nd year only** - Attend overnight Retreat in the Santa Cruz Mountains: Date is TBD
