The youth ministry program is open to all 6th graders and up. The mission is to provide a catechesis curriculum with hands-on service projects, events, fundraisers, performances, sports, retreats and mission trips that will offer a variety of opportunities for the youth to build a Christ-centered relationship with their friends, families and the parish community.
Meet the NEW Youth Ministry Coordinator
Jess de Groot, 298-1122 x289
Jess de Groot is a recent graduate of the University of Dayton (2017), where she studied Psychology and Biology. It was at UD that she felt a deepening of her faith through involvement in Campus Ministry and felt called to pursue work in Youth Ministry. After graduation, she participated in the Marianist PULSE Year of Service program, through which she worked as a full-time staff member at Victory Project, a faith-based after school program for disadvantaged youth in Dayton, and lived in financial solidarity with those whom she served.
Jess is thrilled to join the staff of Saint Albert the Great as Youth Minister and truly feels this is an answer to God's calls.
She will be at the parish picnic on September 22nd, and is excited to meet everyone there!
