Youth Ministry takes many forms here at St. Veronica Parish. Our young people participate in the Mass as cantors and musicians, as ushers, as lectors, and as gift bearers. A special ministry which involves many of our children and teens is that of altar serving. Teens and children also have opportunities to become involved in parish events throughout the year, such as the Christmas Giving Tree, decorating the church for Christmas and Easter, the Corpus Christi Procession, proclaiming the Word of God at the Easter Vigil, serving at the Knights of Columbus Memorial Day breakfast, just to name a few.
Many teenagers volunteer their time as Teacher helpers in our Religious Education program and during our annual Vacation Bible School.
We have two active youth groups at St. Veronica Parish:
Junior Youth Group – This group is for children in Grades 5-7. Junior Youth meets every other Friday in the Mother Seton Academy gymnasium, from 7 to 9 p.m. from mid-September to mid-May.
High School Youth Group – This group is for teens in Grades 8-12. High School Youth meet every other Sunday in the Mother Seton Academy cafeteria from 6 to 8:30 p.m., immediately following the 5 p.m. Mass, from mid-September to mid-May.
Registration forms for both youth groups may be obtained by contacting Sr. Ann Elizabeth, CR. Please call 732-364-4137 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
