San Rafael’s High School Youth Ministry works to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
This ministry strives to provide new opportunities and experiences for high school youth that will draw them to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic Church.

Sponsor Youth Leadership
Our youth leaders are the hands and feet of the San Rafael’s Youth Ministry Program and one of our greatest blessings. These Confirmed high school youth answer God’s call to give back to our parish community by becoming peer leaders. They devote their time to witnessing Christ to their peers through relational ministry, weekly Confirmation classes, planning and hosting retreats, events, prayer nights, and a multitude of service and social opportunities. Your sponsorship will help to empower and support our youth in their efforts to spread the Good News. Your donation will go directly to support San Rafael’s Youth Leadership Team in their leadership training, retreats, and various events throughout the year.
