Rebuilding the Church by Developing Young Disciples and Healthy, Holy Families

"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12

Young people are essential members of the Body of Christ. They have a unique zeal for justice, faith, and love of the Gospel. They long for Truth, and they won't rest until they find it. They challenge convention and inspire innovation. Young people inject a contagious energy into their communities and set hearts on fire. We cannot ignore young disciples for they are active witnesses to the love of Jesus Christ in our world today.

Our Lady of Peace sees the individual person, upholds their dignity, and recognizes that they were created for greatness. Each young person has been blessed with gifts and a distinct role in salvation history. Our role is to present them with opportunities to discover those gifts, encounter Jesus Christ, develop their relationship with Him, and empower them to disciple others.
