Parish of the Most Holy Name of Jesus - Elmira, NY
Life Long Faith Formation Youth Ministry

The Youth Group for teens aged 13 – 17 is a newer ministry in the Parish. Our mission is to provide teens with fun, safe, faith-based opportunities within the Parish and Diocesan communities.


A sampling of our youth program includes:


  • Annual Car Wash in August to benefit the Youth Group and the Food Pantry, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.

  • Participation in the Walk for Life in September to benefit the Southern Tier Pregnancy Resource Center.

  • Game and Open Gym Nights with pizza, prizes, and prayer at the Faith Formation Center.

  • Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.


Watch for our announcements in the bulletin for meetings and special events!


If your son or daughter would like to join Youth Group, please contact Matt Griffin, our Volunteer Youth Group Leader, at or call the Faith Formation Center 733-3484.


If you’re an adult 18+ and feel called to youth ministry, please contact Anne Bremer, Coordinator of Volunteers for the Parish, 733-3484. All Youth Group volunteers need to be CASE trained and undergo a background check.
