Youth Group

Mission Trip 2018

High school students often serve as acolytes in our services, and we typically host an annual Mission Trip to Grace House on the Mountain in western Virginia.  We sent a group of youth and young adults (along with chaperones) in July 2017 and July 2018.  We were scheduled to return to Grace House in August 2020; however, due to the pandemic that has been postponed.  We look forward to returning to the ministry at Grace House one day soon.  Friends are welcome, too.  For more information speak with Fr. Jerry or Mama Jane.

In the Winter of 2020 we are embarking on a multi-church Youth Group along with St. John's Montclair and St. Luke's Montclair.  There will be monthly gatherings as well as outings to the Pop-Up Youth Ministry events within the Diocese.  For further information speak with Liz Dalton.
