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
