Meet Our Core Team!!

Here at Holy Spirit our goal is to lead all of our teens into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. We have been successful at accomplishing this goal because of our core team responding to their baptismal call of spreading the gospel.


To be on the core team we ask only one thing- you love teenagers and want to see them in a relationship with Jesus Christ!


We have many spots for adults and older teens to serve:


- Core members who lead small groups and are in the trenches of weekly discipleship

- Core members who lead our hospitality at our teen Mass & Life Nights

- Core Members who set up food and cleanup

- Core members who support our Youth Ministers with administrative assistance
