YM Title

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.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to all of our volunteers. We could not do anything without you. The youth of our parish and our world desperately need adults who take their Catholic faith seriously and are witnesses of the joyful life that our faith allows us to live – thank you for your “yes” to be that! 

In our youth ministry we have adults who work with teens and adults who serve our teens by doing work behind the scenes. Both of these roles are vital to our ministry, and we could not succeed without either of them. The adults who work with teens are called our Core Team, and they help execute every aspect of our nights, including games, talks, and prayer. Our adults who work behind the scenes are hall monitors, hospitality help, check-in people, and more. We need adults of all ages and backgrounds to make our ministry work! Our adults help with EDGE Junior High Ministry, Confirmation Preparation, and Life Teen High School Ministry. 

If you are interested in working with our ministry in any capacity, please email Maggie Super, Director of Youth & Young Adult Ministry at maggie.stmaryhuntley@gmail.com


Below you can find our “Core Team eBook” which we made to help you know everything you need to know about being on Core Team – what is expected of you, what does it look like to lead a small group well, and more!

Core Team eBook

As Jesus with the disciples of Emmaus,

so the church must become the

traveling companion of young people.”
