St. Jude Catholic Parish - South Bend, Indiana

Youth Group

Christ has confidence in young people and entrusts them with the very future of his mission, “Go and make disciples”. Go beyond the confines of what is humanly possible and create a world of brothers and sisters!
-Pope Francis

The U.S. Bishops outline three goals on “what it means for the Catholic community to respond to the needs of young people and to involve young people in sharing their unique gifts with the larger community.”

  • To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
  • To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
  • To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

Youth Group Leaders: Erik and Mary Johnson
