"What is needed today is a church which knows how to respond to the expectations of young people. Jesus wants to enter into dialogue with them and, through His body, which is the church, to propose the possibility of a choice, which will require a commitment of their lives . . . so the church must become the traveling companion of young people..."
- Pope John Paul II, World Youth Day 1995, Philippines
St. Patricia offers many opportunities through Worship and Music Ministry for youth and young adult involvement and participation.

2022 Teen Mission Trip
June 26th-July 2nd
Teen Mission Trip
Teens and chaperones leave the comfort of home to paint and repair the houses of needy families with other groups attending in different selected locations out of state. Certification for 40 hours of community service is provided to participants.
Along with hundreds of other people, you’ll experience high-impact, interactive programs with music, Scripture, video, drama, and hands-on activities...led by a trained youth ministry professional and a song leader. Programs are carefully designed by the youth ministry experts at Group Magazine (the most widely read youth ministry publication) to help you shape your group’s service experience into a spiritual growth experience.
Nature of Projects: Our group will provide home repairs at no cost for elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged people that need our help. Project crews typically serve the same resident for the entire week, creating an environment where meaningful relationships develop. Most projects are designed to be completed during the week, allowing your group to experience the satisfaction of a job well done. You will serve the needs of others through projects like; Interior and exterior painting, building or repairing porches and wheelchair ramps, minor roofing.
Project Crew Structure: Typically, you’ll work at a home in small teams (five-six teenagers with one or two adults) helping someone who needs—and appreciates—your help. Each crew member is valuable part of the team fulfilling an important and defined role within the crew. Our group will make new friends while serving on project teams with people from other churches.
