Ministry for Youth of Parish

For Children and Teens

Youth Ministry -- Saint Catherine of Sienna Parish has a long history in serving our children and teens through the years.  There have been diversified groups geared to a variety of activities and events that are designed for our younger parishioners.  We encourage our youngsters to be involved in their parish life.  We have both spiritual and social opportunities for our youth.

Here are just a few ways our younger parishioners have opportunity to be involved in parish life:                 

Altar Servers - Serving at Mass ...  Read More about serving on the altar.

Youth Movement ... Over the last few decades youth ministry has had changes in leadership, age requirements and composition.  We have adjusted to the needs of the younger parishioner through the years.  This year under the direction of Christopher Basile we again invite our children and teens to join us!

CYO Sports Program - Basketball and Volleyball
Our program is for girls and boys and follows the guidelines of the Catholic Youth Organization within the Diocese of Rockville Centre.

Girl Scout Catholic Religous Awards ... A national GSUSA and Diocesan program available to Girl Scout Troops and individual girls.  Eight religious awards with many activities are designed for different levels of Girl Scouting and grades (1st Grade - 12th Grade).  Contact:  Girl Scout Catholic Awards SCS Parish Coordinator Eleanor Molina via SCS Parish Office, or Diocese of Rockville Centre Girl Scouting ( for additional information.

Youth Choir ... Sang hymns and songs of praise at Sunday Family Mass; traditionally the 9:30AM Mass in SCS Chapel-Sienna Center.  The sounds of our young parishioners raising their voices together in worship has long been a tradition. 


Puzzles & Youth Page Activities ... A new addition for our children and teens (and adults) are Word Search puzzles, Crossword puzzles, Color Me Pages and more published in our weekly parish bulletin.  We encourage all to read our bulletin available after all weekend Masses, at SCS Welcome Desk and here on this website.
