ST. ALBERT YOUTH MINISTRY

Love God! Serve Others! Be Disciples!

Join us  online!

We know there is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now. We are being asked to practice social distancing and in a time where that could easily isolate so many, instead I am watching as the world draws closer together in solidarity to battle the unknown.

The Youth Ministry community, not just at St. Albert the Great or the Archdiocese of Louisville, are finding ways and sharing tips on how we can continue to accompany the Young Church. Let us draw closer to a God who loves us endlessly during this time.

That said, here is an updated Youth Ministry schedule in light of COVID-19.

Sunday Nights 8-9 PM EST – ProjectYM Live

Each broadcast is an hour long and includes games, music, and a teaching from one of the top Catholic youth ministry speakers in the country. Teens will be able to watch the live stream from any device. This is geared for youth but parents are welcome to “attend” with their kids. St. Albert the Great Youth are invited to join our monitored GroupMe Chat during the event. Followed by our 30 minute Zoom Video Call to connect face-to-face and process the event.

Wednesdays 3-4 PM – Mid Week Check-Ins Via Online Platform
Specifically for our St. Albert the Great Catholic Community. All Jr High, High School, Parents/Volunteers are welcome to join in for a video check in each week. This meeting is geared for our youth to connect and uplift one another, in order to continue to build our community here at St. Albert the Great. We will be using the Zoom Meeting platform for this call as well. Some weeks we’ll play games, but we’ll also chat about life, and take prayer requests.
