The Youth Ministry at Saint Rose of Lima combines the talents and interests of young people to provide them with opportunities for service, social and spiritual growth. The goals of youth ministry is first, to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today; second, to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community and finally, to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
The vision of “1 youth ministry” consist of the development of leadership, planning and communication skills; the youth’s understanding of our Christian call to serve others; and the Diocese concern for the development of young people in the Catholic parish today. Not only are we concerned with social and service activities for the youth but also for their exploration of living a Catholic lifestyle.
St Rose of Lima offers a Life Teen Mass on Sundays at 6:00 pm. The teen-friendly celebration of the Eucharist with upbeat, contemporary music blended with traditional hymns and liturgical responses. Teens serve as lectors to proclaim the readings, serve as ushers, gift bearers, Cantors and the choir.
