Youth Ministry is very important in the life of the Church. Youth ministry should begin to teach our youth what a life of discipleship looks like. As baptized members of the Church, youth are called to serve others and to serve Christ. It is the youth ministry, pastor, and parent's job to empower youth to live Christian lives of discipleship.
As St. Pope John Paul II said to the youth at his installation ceremony, "You are the future of the world, you are the hope of the Church, you are my hope".
