Organize, promote and sustain a discipleship-based program for youth in grades 6-12 which provides social, catechetical, spiritual, and service opportunities as they grow in their relationship with Christ and their peers.

Recruit, develop and coordinate the necessary catechists and volunteers in order to build and maintain vibrant pastoral and formational outreach to youth, ensure that St. Anne Catholic Church is in alignment with national and local standards, and enable adult volunteers to continue to grow in their faith.
