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.

The ICP is independent and not controlled by the Church. There is no time limit on when the abuse may have taken place. The program will consider all claims, regardless of how long ago the abuse occurred. No attorney is necessary and there are no fees of any kind. U.S. Residency is also not required.
