Sunday Night Prymer Nights

Prymer Youth Ministry meetings occur twice a month 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.

Our goal is to afford young people every opportunity to learn and grow in their Catholic-Christian? faith. Through bi-weekly meetings and the weekly Youth and Young Adult Mass we advocate young people to develop a personal relationship with God through the person of His son Jesus Christ.

Teens also serve at the mass and at the triannual service projects in our local community.

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). 

SJ Prymer is a Youth program whose purpose is to cultivate the faith of the young people at St. Joseph Catholic parish. Our motto is "Leading Teens to live faith filled lives".

Volunteer Corps

The Youth Ministry/Confirmation program is looking for people excited to share their faith and experiences with young people. We are seeking help in the following areas::
  • Finance and Fundraising for the Office of Youth and Confirmation
  • Young Adult Peer Ministry to High School Teens (YAs ministering to Teens)
  • High School Peer ministry to Jr. High Tweens (Confirmed HS students ministering to Jr. High)
  • Parental Life Support (Parent Volunteers)
  • Spirit Leaders & Social Event Organizers

If you have the skills and the will to serve in these capacities, please contact the Youth Office at sjfremont.youth@gmail.com or by calling 510.657.0905. Lastly, please don’t forget to pray for our young people, that their faith continue to guide them to good decisions and character.
