JAM Youth Ministry


JAM is not just any name but one with much meaning behind it.




Jesus and Mary are the core of our lives as Catholics and the reason

for our Catholic faith.


We pray that Mary, our Mother lead our youth to Jesus and assist

them in their needs.

It’s been a crazy few weeks. There’s a lot up in the air, and we’re not sure when we’ll start gathering at the church again – but that doesn’t mean youth nights have to stop…

Thousands of teenagers from across the country are gathering on Sunday nights for the BIGGEST YOUTH NIGHT EVER. It’s called ProjectYM Live and each week it’ll feature some of the biggest speakers and worship leaders in the Catholic youth ministry world.

Our parish is signed up to participate – all your teenager has to do is head to PROJECTYM.COM/WATCH this Sunday at 7pm Central.

Two quick notes:

1.    The broadcast starts at 7pm CDT, but plan to have your student log in a few minutes early to make sure they’re on when it starts.

2.    They can access the event on any device with a web browser – but the faster the connection, the better.

I’ll shoot you an email on Sunday afternoon to remind you.

Ps. Though this event is geared at teenagers, you are invited to watch along with them!

Stuebenville LIVE! 


We’ve all experienced our fair share of sufferings during these past few months. So much about our lives has changed, and it hasn’t been easy. But through it all, one thing hasn’t changed: Jesus Christ is still with us and he loves us beyond measure. 

It pains us that we can’t ​personally support you and the tens of thousands of people who normally come to encounter the life-changing love of Christ at the Steubenville Conferences across North America. Still, that’s not going to stop us from being there for you during these difficult times. 

Experience hope alive at our first virtual conference, Steubenville Live!

Enjoy a virtual event like no other (we know – Zoom classes are getting old): 

  • Live-streamed, no pre-recorded talks 

  • Fully interactive 

  • Powerful worship music
