St. Mary’s Youth Ministry
We the Youth Ministry of St. Mary’s in Huntley proclaim the life-changing love of God in order to lead young people to a deep, lasting relationship with the Person of Jesus Christ and His Church.
While we are unable to gather in person, we pray you will gather with us virtually! We are still committed to praying with you and for you during these times.
