Youth Ministry Support Team


It takes much prayer and many volunteers to make our program a success.

Below are some of the ways that you can help to support the youth of our parish.


OLOF Safe Environment Policies
We are committed to the safety and dignity of every youth. We take seriously the moral and legal responsibility of providing a Safe Environment in our ministry. We comply with the all applicable laws and Diocesan Safe Environment Policies (Click Here To View ) .
We are routinely audited for our compliance.

Our Programs

Family Dinners

Each Wednesday night we feed the youth dinner in a family dinner style setting. We do this at no cost to the youth as part of our ministry, however, youth are invited to bring $2 to donate it to our Haiti Mission - this is not a requirement for them to each.

WE NEED YOU! We have a lot of kids to feed and this is only possible because of the generous parishioners and parents who bring a plate each Wednesday! From just dropping off a plate or staying to help serve, in whatever capacity you can help!

We are able to coordinate this through the link below and we hope you are able to help on even one night or even more!

Four:6 After School Program

Four:6 is exactly what it sounds like - we open our doors at 4pm for students to come and do their homework and play games directly after school on Wednesdays. We have snacks for them and offer them a safe and fun environment to be in. Given the rise in Suicide in teens during these critical hours, it is our hope that this ministry allows us to be a brick in the wall of resistance.

Needs: Two or More Virtus Trained adults to come and help us during this time frame each week. It is to be there with the students as they do their homework, play outside, etc. The more volunteers we have, we can have a good rotation!


High School Ministry - HSM (Grades 9-12)

High School Ministry (HSM) serves youth grades 9-12 and ages 14-18. This ministry is a dynamic program that focuses on building the various areas of a teen's life through opportunities where the youth can encounter Christ. This relationship is fostered through prayer, the sacraments, and community with each other and the church.

Needs: We are always in need of caring Virtus Trained safe adults to help on Wednesday nights. Many times this ranges from simply attending and being present, helping with the flow of the evening in setup and facilitation, and for those who are able presenting topics/talks to the youth. We also have many events and activities such as 1st Sunday Bible Studies, events, and trips (especially in the summer!) On the interest survey below, we have a list of options you can select to serve in.


Middle School Ministry - MSM & Confirmation (Grade 6-8)

Middle School Ministry (MSM) serves youth grades 6-8 and ages 11-14. Middle School is a unique period for each student and caring, safe adults can play an important role in their lives. Our Confirmation program is integrated into our Middle School Program and helps prepare our students for this beautiful sacrament.

Needs: We are always in need of caring Virtus Trained safe adults to help on Wednesday nights. Many times this ranges from simply attending and being present, helping with the flow of the evening in setup and facilitation, and for those who are able presenting topics/talks to the youth.
