High School

High School Happenings

In a world with so much craziness, it’s good to have a place where teens can experience a positive, “good-kind-of-craziness” with others who share their faith. In the Youth Ministry Program at St. Joseph, high school students can have fun together, grow in their relationship with God, and serve others in a faith-filled, nurturing environment.

A brand new High School Youth Group program is coming October 2017! Please check back soon for details.


Mission Trip

Gear up for these high-energy, home-repair mission trips each summer during which youth work hard to improve the living situations of people in need, while also building strong relationships with friends and youth leaders.  Our previous mission trips have served the people of Scranton, PA, China Grove, NC, York, PA, Keansburg, NJ, Burlington, NJ and Lexington, NC.



For more information, contact the YM Office.



Musically Speaking

We are looking for young people who sing and/or play a musical instrument (any instrument is great!) We rehearse on Sundays before the 5:00 pm Mass, then play at Mass. Contact the YM Office for more information. You may earn Confirmation service hours for your participation.

Teens are also invited to participate in the SJCC Hand Bell Choir. Interested? Contact Carole Gauthier at carolemgauthier@gmail.com
