Middle School Youth Group

Tweens and teens in 5th through 8th grades are invited to join their peers on Sundays from 3:30-5:15PM in the Social Hall Youth Room for food, fun, and faith.  Have fun doing art projects while learning more about your Catholic faith. For more information contact Marie Morrison at (505) 629-9169.


High School Youth Group

Our merry group of high school teens meet for impromptu fire pit chats, volleyball games (mud optional), or after Sunday Mass restaurant visits where we discuss topics from faith to rodeos. Join us in prayer at our Youth Holy Hour every 1st Friday from 8:00PM-9:00PM in the San Jose Chapel. During the summer, a group of us attend the Steubenville of the Rockies Youth Conference in Denver where we join over 2500 other high school teens to learn more about our faith and worship Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.

1 Timothy 4:12
