Lifelong Formation

Teen Peer Minister

The Teen Peer Minister is a high school age young leader who, under the direction and supervision of the Coordinator of Youth Ministry or designated Youth Minister, assists in the development and implementation of the mission and vision of a parish Youth Ministry Pastoral Plan. The role of the Teen Peer Minister is to accompany, mentor, and inspire the young people of the parish to a life in Christ and His Church. 

Our Mission is to help our present young leaders to become future ministers of our Church and our world. By developing their hearts, minds and souls, we create a generation of young leaders in the faith, ministry and life.

Our vision is to intentionally invest time, resources, and quality formation in high school teens from different parishes of the Archdiocese, so they may become effective young leaders of our Church today and key ministers and leaders of our Church tomorrow. 

We have three overarching goals:

  • To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today. Forming leaders in the Catholic faith.
  • To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community. Forming leaders in ministry.
  • To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person. Forming leaders in Life.

Teen Peer Ministry is on sabbatical for the 2017-2018 year. For more information on forming your young teen leaders contact our Youth and Young Adult Ministry Team.
