Youth Ministry

All are Welcome!

There are many opportunities for youth to grow closer to the Lord, and serve at His altar. All St. Matthew Youth are able to participate fully in the Liturgy, serving as Altar Servers, Greeters, Ushers, Gift Bearers, Eucharistic ministers and Choir Members. Our Weekly 9am Sunday Mass is our Youth Mass.

Altar Servers: Altar Servers assist and aid the clergy and the community in serving at God’s altar at Mass.  You may sign up to become an Altar server beginning in grade 4 and continue on through college. Contact Fr. Sunil:
