Dear Curé Community,
My name is Amanda Marnett. I am the new youth minister at Curé of Ars Catholic Church. We are beginning registration for groups 5th & 6th, 7th & 8th, and High School.

What is youth group? Youth group will provide an opportunity to live the Catholic faith through service, sacraments, and socializing. It will provide a safe, supportive, and encouraging environment to guide members in their personal faith journeys. Members will have opportunities to grow in their faith, build relationships with peers, and earn service hours. You don’t need to be a member of Curé of Ars Catholic Church to join, everyone is welcome. I hope you consider registering and I cannot wait to begin working with the community!
