Summer Schedule


Mustard Seed is the youth group of St Joseph Catholic Parish and is open to all high school teens and their friends. We meet most Sundays in the Loft of the Parish Center from 6-8pm. Our youth group is “come when you can” – there are no mandatory meetings. Many of our meetings are planned and led by the teens on our Leadership Team and the Youth Minister Don Dalgleish.

We have three retreats every year:

  • Youth Leadership Retreat (for those on the Leadership Team)
  • Fall Retreat
  • Winter Retreat

We also attend regional and diocesan events such as the Youth Jamboree. In addition, we perform service projects such as the National Relief Network (NRN) which assists affected areas in response to tornardoes, flooding, and other natural disasters.

Mustard Seed is a place where you can come see and feel the Holy Spirit at work in you and in others. 

There is no cost to register for the Mustard Seed program or to attend the weekly meetings but we do need you to register. There are some fees to attend special events, retreats, and/or other special outings.
