Youth Ministry

Summer Hike - Saturday, July 17
Consider joining us for a hike!  Please meet us at the park if you can.  If not, we will have a few seats to transport anyone who otherwise couldn't attend; just let me know this when you email to RSVP.  This is also a great event to bring any friends to--no affiliation with St. Benedict or Youth Ministry required.

The yearly registration fee for youth ministry is $50 for high school and $25 for middle school.  If you are registering for the 2020-2021 school year in January 2021 or later, we only ask that you pay $25 for high school or $15 for middle school.

If this poses a financial hardship, you are still more than welcome to join us!  Please still complete the registration form to provide us emergency contact information and a photo release.  Paperwork and payment can be brought to any youth ministry meeting and given to Julie McDonald.  We accept cash and checks, but be advised we are unable to make change for cash.

Julie McDonald is our Coordinator of Youth Ministry. The youngest of four daughters, she was born and raised in Albany, New York. She is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where she studied theology and political science. During her time there she enjoyed the dinner discussions of the Theology Club, which she served as co-president, and editing the campus’s Catholic newspaper. She was also grateful to spend a semester in the Holy Land. Julie moved to Colorado this summer after marrying Aidan McDonald, a fellow Notre Dame grad and Colorado native. She enjoys cats, bike rides, and learning to play the violin.
