Special Youth Services
At-Risk Youth and Juvenile Probation Ministry
Special Youth Services models the embrace of Christ through pastoral care, advocacy, and faith sharing in local juvenile justice centers, facilities, and programs including the promotion and coordination of restorative services to at-risk youth and their families. Our ministry encompasses all counties within our local Archdiocese, working with youth from ages 10-17.
Matthew 25: 35-36, 40
For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me,
ill and you cared for me,
in prison and you visited me...
Amen, I say to you,
whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine,
you did for me.
