Welcome to St. Robert PYM!

Mission Statement

The Saint Robert Bellarmine Parish Youth Ministry Team is committed to the reality that young people are an important and integral part of our parish community. The Parish Youth Ministry (PYM) Program seeks to foster maturing in faith of the youth of our parish and the surrounding community.

We affirm the gifts of our youth and we foster opportunities for young people to share their gifts with the larger community. The spiritual and social needs of the youth are to be met with the committed leadership, guidance and support of our parish adults. The adults and youth of our parish are therefore provided with the opportunity to grow together in Christian faith.

Through a variety of programs, events and outreach which seek to serve the spiritual, social, and physical well being of our children, we seek to draw young people into responsible participation in the life, work and mission of the parish community.

We believe this ministry is to, with, by, and for young people and is a blessing for the entire community.
