The Catholic Youth Organization is a parish-based program, which provides opportunities for youth to grow in faith and understanding of the Church through involvement in parish, regional and Archdiocesan life.

The CYO five-phase approach to youth ministry = Athletic, Social, Cultural, Service, Spiritual = is a model of youth ministry, which involves youth from grades kindergarten through twelfth in youth-related activities and programs.

Through a total youth ministry concept, the CYO organization collaborates on all the youth-related programs offered by the parish.

The emphasis of the CYO is to enable and empower youth to become responsible participants in the faith community.
