Youth Ministry

WELCOME to the Easton Area Catholic Youth Group

Director: Kelly DeRaymond

We live our faith through being: SPIRITUAL, SERVICE, SOCIAL


The Easton Area Catholic Youth Group is committed to the reality that young people are an important and integral part of our church.
The youth group seeks to foster the maturing of faith in the youth of our parishes and the surrounding community.

We affirm the gifts of our youth and we foster opportunities for young people to share their gifts with the larger community. The spiritual, service, and social needs of the youth are to be met with the support of our parish adults.
The youth of our parish are therefore provided with the opportunity to grow together in Christian faith.

Through a variety of programs, events, and outreach, we seek to draw young people into responsible participation in the life, work, and mission of the parish community.
