Welcome to St. Teresa of Avila's Youth and Young Adult Ministry

 

Sandwich Saturdays

Youth Ministry Meetings

We meet twice monthly on Sundays at Seidel Hall at St. Teresa of Avila Church from 3:30pm to 5pm.  Our meetings focus on Social, Service, Serious and Spiritual – with lots of fun thrown in!  Join us at the next meeting for pizza and the promise that where two or more are gathered, God is with us! Check the parish weekly bulletin or our calendar for our next meeting time, or email Sandy Vas.
 

Youth Newsletter

Read the thoughts (serious, spiritual or silly) of your fellow youth here in Woodbury in our Youth Newsletter, or CONTRIBUTE yourself! Filled with information and inspiration, we are looking for new and upcoming writers who wish to build their portfolio of work! Email Liza Montgomery to find out more.
 

University Outreach

Keep in touch with the teens and young adults of our parish as they venture out into the world during their college years. To find out more email Youth Ministry Coordinator Sandy Vas for more information.
