Mission Statement 

St. Joseph Youth Group welcomes Jr. High and High School teens to participate in our Edge and  LifeTeen Programs which strive to help young people build a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through understanding the teachings of the Catholic Church and through the experience of growing in a Christian community. God always calls us to grow closer to Him, so come join us as we walk together in our faith with the guidance of the Church, the prayers of the Saints, and the protection of our Blessed Mother.
