Prayer & Worship- awakening the awareness of the spirit at work in their lives through communal prayer and liturgical experiences, especially the Eucharist.
Youth Ministry is built on the relationships between Jesus, the student and other members of our parishes. These relationships began at baptism and nourished in the Eucharist. All activities are to help these relationships grow and bear fruit by supporting the wonderful relationship the Lord has forged in their lives with parents, grandparents, confirmation sponsors, catechists and other members of our faith community. These activities supplement the students’ experience of Jesus in the Eucharist and in their primary Catechetical programs.
The members of the Marion Catholic Community, given life through the Holy Spirit in Baptism, are called together as a community of faith to praise and worship God our Creator and to proclaim in word and deed the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
As members of the Body of Christ we strive to serve all to provide an atmosphere of hospitality which enables all to respond fully to the life-long challenge "to do right and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God." Micah 6:8
