Youth Ministry at the Church of St. Pius X provides a safe atmosphere for junior high and high school students to experience their Catholic faith. Through social outings, retreats, service opportunities, and gatherings, our parish is committed to the Holy Father's vision of the Church's ministry with adolescents. The Holy Father's incorporates these three essential goals into his vision:
- Empowering young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
- Drawing young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith community.
- Fostering the personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
This is just a very short overview of the goals of Youth Ministry.
Unite Ministries, formerly Greater Rochester Area Catholic Youth Ministry, serves youth from around the Rochester, MN area. Youth ministers from Catholic parishes in Rochester, Stewartville, Dodge Center, St. Charles, Plainview, and the surrounding areas work together to provide area-wide events including UNITE Masses, social events, youth rallies, service trip and projects, and more.

Camp Summit is a camp for students entering 6th, 7th or 8th grade who are looking to learn more about their faith alongside their peers, and in a fun and adventure-filled setting. This camp takes place at Eagle Bluff in Lanesboro, MN, in early August. There are also opportunities for high school students to participate as leaders on the Prayer or FIAT teams through an application process. Not all students who apply will be accepted so please spend some time on your application and feel free to have me look it over before you submit it. Stay tuned for more information. We will also need several chaperones for our parish – male and female.
