Thank you for your interest in serving the young people of St. Mary's! Please contact our Youth Minister, Kristen Juda for information on how to get involved.
Here at Saint Mary's Youth Ministry, we take seriously our responsibility to protect our children and to guide them closer to the Lord in safe ways with trained ministers. Each person who comes into contact with our children have been trained through VIRTUS, where we learn how to protect our children from harm of any sort and learn the right actions to take in protecting our children.
Jesus desired the young children to come to Him (Matthew 19:14), and we want our families to know that our trained volunteers and employees will do all that is necessary to create a holy and safe environment for our children. If you want to volunteer for our youth ministry, know that we require you to be trained through VIRTUS. You can find more information about the Diocese of Grand Rapid's VIRTUS training here, and more specifically Saint Mary's VIRTUS program here.
