JAM (Jesus and Me) is the St. Benedict Middle School Youth Ministry for kids in 6th-8th grade.

JAM meets weekly with occasional special events, including service events, social outings, and daytime retreats. By exploring the teachings of our Catholic faith and discussing moral issues, our youth grow in relationship with one another and with Jesus Christ, which reinforces a strong foundation for their future. JAM youth are also encouraged to actively participate in parish liturgies throughout the year as altar servers, choir members, lectors or hospitality ministers.

Volunteers Needed

The success of our St. Benedict Youth Ministry greatly depends on amazing volunteers like YOU! If you feel called to be more involved with the young people of our parish (junior high or high school), we would love to talk to you about joining our team for 2023-2024! No prior experience is required - just a willingness to joyfully accompany our young people in their growing relationship with Christ by sharing your time and Catholic faith. You'll receive support and training and likely find your time with the youth fruitful to your own relationship with Christ. Several roles with varying time commitments are available.
