Youth Ministry

St. Andrew / St. Jude Youth Ministry meets Wednesday evenings at St. Jude from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. during the school season. 

Our director of youth ministry is Jesse Spanogle who also directs youth ministry at Our Lady’s Christian School. The group participates in retreats, service opportunities, and faith-filled discussions. Mr. Spanogle can be contacted at catholicconnection@gmail.com

     Chat rooms can be a treacherous place and parents need to talk to their children about the potential dangers.  Children "meet' new friends virtually but in the virtual world you never really know who you are talking to.  Sometimes these 'friends' are adults trying to gain the friendship and trust of children and youth.  Continual monitoring of children's participation in chat rooms is required to keep children safe!  To see what the Diocese of Erie is doing to help create safe environments, check out http://wwww.eriecd.org/protectyouth.htm
