CRUX Teen Ministry

St. Paul of the Cross invites you to participate in the CRUX program offered by Mary, Seat of Wisdom parish

Teens are not just the future of the Church, but the young Church of today! CRUX Teen Ministry provides opportunities to be disciples and make disciples in the most formative time of their lives. CRUX means “cross” or "focal point" in Latin and asks the teens to place Jesus Christ as the definitive center of their young lives.


What to Expect?
Teens are invited to participate at the level most comfortable to them. Youth meetings, service projects, annual retreats, monthly Masses, outreach projects, service trips, and the opportunity to use their individual talents at liturgical celebrations are just some of the ways teens may be involved. Along the way, teens delve into their individual spirituality, explore our Catholic faith, experience the unconditional love of Christ, develop leadership skills, and embody faith through service.
