What: Nazareth is the town where Jesus lived the hidden years of His youth (Luke 2:51-52). During this time, Jesus learned how to pray, work, live in a family, and grow with friends with the help of His Mother Mary and St. Joseph. Nazareth Middle School Youth Ministry is the best team you can be a part of because we are a team who are growing in virtue and striving to be saints! Whether you are coming from Nazareth Elementary or this is your first time joining the adventure of holiness, we want you on our team.

Each week we will follow the footsteps of the Saints with large group games, summit the heights of the *Rule of Life Compass with our High School Mentors, journey through the depths of Scripture as a small group team, and learn to live our lives for others in our parish and community through Apostolic Projects.
*Rule of Life Compass: North-Friendship with Christ, East- Family, South- Mission: Nazareth & helping others, West: Studies
