General Information

COST

There is no cost to attend Youth Ministry. There is a small fee for extra events. We try to assist as much as possible via parish subsidy & scholarships. 

WHO CAN ATTEND

We welcome all teens who are in grades 6-12.  Our program consists of parishioners, non-parishioners, Catholics, and non-Catholics. 
Friends are always welcome to attend events or youth nights as long as they are in 6th-12th grade.

ATTENDANCE

We do not have an attendance policy. We understand that many teens have extracurricular activities and we do not want to deter them from attending Youth Ministry. Teens are welcome as their schedules permit.

CANCELLATION 

If Youth Ministry is cancelled, you will be notified via email. If Youth Ministry is cancelled due to inclement weather, you will be notified via email and/or text message. Parents and teens can opt into the Remind 101 text messaging system by texting the following message to 81010: for middle school students, @olgmsym; for high school students, @olghsym.

CODE OF CONDUCT

We strive to create a safe and healthy environment built on respect for God, others, and Church property. OLGYM is smoke, drug, and weapon free. YM gatherings are an opportunity for us to gather as a community, therefore we ask that teens refrain from using cell phones and other electronic devices at YM. Out of respect for others, teens are asked to refrain from foul and demeaning language. Teens are asked to respect the opinions of others and to listen when others are speaking. Out of respect for the parish, we expect that teens will not damage Church property and that they will clean up their area after meeting. All rules are for the safety and well-being of the teens and are expected to followed.
