Welcome to the Mater Dei Youth Ministry webpage!  I have been with Mater Dei/ St. Stanislaus for the past 16 years as a faculty member, Parish Youth Minister, and the past 13 years as a classroom aid, substitute,  and Campus Minister for the school community.  As the Campus Minister, it is my goal to provide students in grades 6,7,8 and all families in the Mater Dei community, with meaningful opportunities to grow in their faith through service to those in need.  I look forward to meeting our new Mater Dei students and continue working with the Junior High students in our Youth Ministry activities!!! THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO FOR OTHERS!

Seek Jesus in Others
"Seek Jesus in Others" is our focus for the new year. The creation story teaches us that God did not intend for us to live in isolation, but more importantly, we are made for each other. "Seeking Jesus in Others" reminds us to find the good in one another and to validate each person's dignity. By focusing on our relationships with one another, we will continue to create a sense of belongingness for all community members to mirror our hallmarks of Faith, Excellence, Service, and Community.
