Youth Council is a leadership opportunity for high school students to serve the Church community in a variety of ways while deepening their relationships with God and each other. All high school students are invited to apply!
Below are some of the leadership roles Youth Council served this past year:

- Host the All Youth Fall Kick-Off in September
- Participate in all aspects of Youth Sunday

- Organize Outreach events and activities: Rama Reads - an after school program at Rama Road Elementary School and Feeding Hope Food Drive for Loaves and Fishes
Youth Council has built a close-knit community at our monthly meetings where we share a meal together, have meaningful conversations, and plan our next events. We are grateful for the Youth Council members' active involvement in parish-wide events, with huge thanks to their adult leaders: Steve Garbee, Sylvia Wood, Nancy Poe, and Alice deVries.
