Welcome to Youth Ministries
We are a parish of families in downtown Danbury, eager and excited to share God's love with each other and the larger community. As the Director of Religious Education and Youth, I invite you to celebrate Christ's love through our various programs for youth and teenagers. I hope you will find our parish to be an inviting space where you and your family can grow in Christ and participate in an ever growing, caring, and loving community.

Once a month, beginning in January 2017, our new confirmands, as well as previously confirmed youth, will be
meeting at 11:30 AM after church service for an open panel discussion forum. Please feel free to ask friends to join our Youth Group.
We are also looking to expand our Youth Group activities with additional outings and events. Please contact Kerry

We are committed to the spiritual development of our youth, grades 6 through high school, through education, service projects and worship. Our young people put what they have learned about Christianity into action through their involvement at Church and in their communities. They build relationships with each other by meeting for activities throughout the year.
