“Let no one despise your youth, but set an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity”

-1 Timothy 4:12

St. Mark Youth Ministry seeks to empower youth to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today. We seek to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community, while fostering the total personal and spiritual growth of each youth. In addition to Sunday evening meetings youth at St. Mark participate in service projects, social events, and retreats such as World Youth Day, the Steubenville Atlanta Conference, Catholic Heart Work Camp, Love My Life Youth Rally, and March for Life in Washington, DC.
