MISSION STATEMENT:   The Youth Ministry of St. Joseph, Gluckstadt ministers to all 7th-12th grade teens of our parish. We gather together to celebrate the life and teachings of Jesus Christ in the Gospels and in the Eucharist. We are committed to participate in the life, mission, and work of our faith communities as we also grow in our own personal and spiritual lives. As Pope Francis stated at World Youth Day 2013, we strive to become “revolutionaries, to swim against the tide” and “to rebel against this culture that sees everything as temporary and that ultimately believes that we are incapable of responsibility, that we are incapable of true love.”
