Youth Ministry


Saint Leo the Great Middle School Campus Ministry

New for academic year 2023-24, Saint Leo the Great School offers a Middle School Campus Ministry Program that is incorporated into the weekly school schedule. Our formal program is for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students who learn and discuss St. Pope John Paul’s great work, the “Theology of the Body.” Through fun games, activities, skits, and discussion, students will learn about virtue, sacrifice, choices and more, all within a Christ-centered curriculum designed to support their Religion Class study. For more information, contact Tina Johnson at [email protected].

If your family is interested in a formal Youth Ministry program, One Voice is a regional youth ministry program in Lancaster for students in 8th-12th grade. Led by experienced Youth Minister, Kim Moore, this active group offers a variety of events and activities such as Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, retreats, Catholic Heart Workcamp, and more.
