Whether it's in our middle school group "FLOW" or "J-Walkers" for high schoolers, our hope for all kids at St. Joe's is that they come to believe the words Pope Francis called all catechists to impart to our youth: “Jesus Christ loves you; he gave his life to save you; and now he is living at your side every day to enlighten, strengthen and free you.” If you have a knack for working with middle or high school kids, come join our ministry!
