Welcome to Youth Ministry at Guardian Angels!

If you are a middle school or high school student (or a parent of a teen), you’ve come to the right place! Whether you are already on fire for Jesus or not quite sure faith is really your “thing,” you are welcome here. Consider this a home away from home when you need to feel like you belong, that you are important, that you bring something amazing to the world . . . because that is all true!

Our Middle School Ministry serves young people in grades 6-8, and our High School Ministry accompanies young people from ninth through twelfth grades as they continue to encounter and deepen their relationship with Jesus. Our goal is to help you to connect your faith with daily life and share your gifts and talents in the mission and work of the church. Here’s a little secret: our Church can’t do what it is supposed to do in the world without YOU. True story.

Look here for current Bible Studies organized via the Bible App by YouVersion. Next Bible Study begins mid-February.


We are currently testing out a new ministry to middle school youth within the Guardian Angels Academy. Look for more opportunities for all young people grades 6-8 coming next fall!

BIBLE STUDY: Academy students will have the opportunity to encounter and grow in relationship with Christ through the study of Scripture once a week. Our first series will explore the question Jesus asks the first apostles – “Who do you say I am?”

SOULCORE: To introduce students to a contemplative and experiential encounter with praying the Rosary, our Academy students will be participating in a modified SoulCore activity once per week. They will pray through a decade of the Rosary while participating in guided exercise and meditation. More about SoulCore can be found at their website, www.soulcore.com.
