"Let no one have contempt for your youth, but set an example for those who believe, in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity." (1 Tm 4:12)
The mission of the Cristeros Hispanic Youth Group is to show Jesus to the youth, so that they can develop a relationship with God through prayer, charity, and be disciples of Jesus. Youth are encouraged to learn, participate, and interact with their peers in a way that is relevant to their young age.
The Cristeros meet once a week to learn more about the faith and also attend other social events such as charity fundraisers, sports days, and retreats.
Meeting time is 7 p.m. in the Parish Hall.
