Mission of St. Charles Youth Ministry: The purpose of Youth Ministry is to create a space for middle school and high school youth to gather, have fun, grow in their faith, develop their understanding of the Church, and share their gifts and talents with others. Every other year in November, high school youth have the opportunity to go to the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) and Kansas City Youth Conference (KCYC) (on opposite years of NCYC). Each summer we host our annual service week in Kansas City, middle school and high school youth have the opportunity to go to Camp Savio (middle school), Camp Bosco (high school), and the Steubenville Conference (high school). Regular events include, but are not limited to: youth nights, service days, off-site social events, and Northland Catholic youth gatherings.
