We show up when our teens need us and we stay interruptible.

St. Anthony’s began Life Teen in 1999 to bring teens into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. Since then, our program has expanded to serve high school (9th-12th grade) and middle school (5th-8th grade) more intentionally. Many lives and families have been impacted by this ministry, and we look forward to continuing to lead teens closer to Christ and His Church. 


We're very excited to announce the hiring of two new youth ministers at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church! PJ Pierce is your new high school minister and he can be reached at ppierce@ap.church, and Samy Pierce is your new middle school youth minister, and she can be reached at spierce@ap.church



We are working on getting the word out there about the new year of youth programs and Flocknote and Instagram will be the best way to see upcoming events regularly:
