Youth Ministry Round-up

Youth Ministry News

Bravo to all of the 19 young people from Youth Ministry and Religious Education who volunteered the Saturday before Thanksgiving at the Community Food Bank. The youth helped clients shop for food and load their cars. In the five hours they served, the youth learned about food distribution from federal, state and local donations and the importance of poverty awareness. All were eager to help and learn more about the needs in their own local community. Well done!

The Church is listening.  She wants to hear from you! 

This survey is designed to gather information about youth and young adults in the Diocese of Camden.  Please take about 12 minutes to complete this survey.  Our aim is to use this information to answer questions of the Preparatory Document for the Synod of Bishops on Youth, the Faith and Vocational Discernment and to better serve youth and young adults in our diocese.  Your input and the data will be shared with parishes so that they can better respond to the reality of today’s youth and young adults.

Parish Ministries

In accordance with the themes of service and ministry in the Gospels, we are called as Catholics to fulfill the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation through service to our community, as a sign of our discipleship.

At Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish we have many lay ministries to serve our community. These ministries have been organized into separate categories, serving under the leadership of Pastor and Parochial Vicar along with the Pastoral Council and the Finance Council.
