Youth Ministries
The coordinator for youth ministry for SS John and Bernard

Parish and St. Joseph Parish, is Chad Roden.

 The parish celebrates Youth Mass followed

by a youth program on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.

Mass begins at 6:00 and the youth program with food and

activities goes until 8:45. Mass is open to the entire parish and

the Youth Night is for youth from 7th to 12th grade. The youth

group also has "Faith Study" on the 1st, 3rd, (and 5th)

Wednesdays of the month following 5:30 Mass until 8:30 with

food for body and soul. “Faith Study” is a time for high school

students to explore their Faith a little deeper with the youth group’s "Faith Guru" (Jeff Ghering).

Please watch your bulletin for time changes due to other activities that may be going on in the building. The Youth Group is available to all high school youth. The youth group invites 7th and 8th graders to the Sunday evening events.
