Saint Raphael High School Youth Ministry
What is HSYM?
"HSYM" simply stands for the High School Youth Ministry program at our parish. OK - so what does that mean? The HSYM program is designed especially for YOU - the young men and women in our parish, who are in grades 9-12, attending ANY high school! We know that your lives are extremely busy with school, extra-curricular activities, jobs, sports and family obligations, but we also want you to be able to take some time throughout the year to grow in your faith and stay connected with your parish.
HSYM does not require you to "join" or become a "member". You are always invited and encouraged to come whenever you can and participate in whatever you wish! And we strive to have something for everyone! HSYM offers a wide variety of events, experiences, week-long trips, gatherings, retreats, service projects, and social outings.
Through all these different opportunities you have the chance to meet other teens in the parish and in our greater Catholic community, to put your faith into action by serving others in need, and to challenge yourself and others to strengthen your relationship with God and your commitment to your Catholic Faith.
