Middle & High School Students

St. Mary’s Youth

After a long pause, our youth program is back up and running! In January of 2023, we resumed activities for our youth, and things are just getting started.

St. Mary’s Youth is a group of students in middle and high school who get together on a weekly basis throughout the school year. There are so many ways to get involved!

Check out our weekly schedule as well as our summer trips to Kanuga and Ecuador!

The group is made up of teens from St. Mary’s and other churches throughout the community.

See the schedule below for times.



They participate in weekly bible studies, play games, LOVE to eat and participate in the various worship services, activities, mission work and outreach initiatives throughout the year.


Our youth participate in the life of the church in many ways. We encourage our students to serve as acolytes and ushers, serve with our coffee ministry, and worship together at our services. Our youth participate in the outreach ministries of the church as well, including Education= Hope during our short-term missions to Ecuador in the summer.


St. Mary’s Youth is made up of middle and high school students throughout Martin County. There are so many ways to get involved! Check out our weekly schedule below, or consider joining us for one of our summer experiences at Kanuga or Ecuador. All are welcome!

2023 Ecuador

Growing into Jesus, Reaching out with love! 

St. Mary’s has a rich history and relationship with Education=Hope in Quito, Ecuador. Through our annual visits to La Iglesia Buen Pastor, we continue to learn and grow alongside their parishioners. Our short-term missions involve serving alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ from Buen Pastor. Through these experiences, we grow closer to Christ!

Education Equals Hope LogoEducation = Hope provides for the education of children in desperate and difficult places.

Our short-term missions are through Hope on the Ground, a branch of Education Equals Hope. E=H provides education and spiritual mentoring, empowering them to break the cycle of poverty, and impact the next generation.
