The Crew – High School Youth Ministry
Our mission is to provide the youth of St. Justin Martyr parish and the surrounding area with opportunities for spiritual growth, Christian leadership, service projects, and social activities. Some events require a permission slip for participants who are under 18. Contact person: Jeannine Szatkowski, 314-472-5717 or send an email. You are also invited to follow us on Instagram (@sjmcrew), Twitter (@sjmteens), or Facebook.
The Crew raked leaves at five houses in our neighborhood in three hours. The senior citizens we helped out appreciated our assistance and enjoyed talking to us. We will have more service projects coming up soon, including a soup kitchen visit in March. Contact Jeannine Szatkowski for information about our service opportunities.
Seven 8th graders, six high school students, and five adults represented St. Justin at the March for Life to show that we believe all human life is sacred from conception to natural death.
The Crew shared a meal, conversation, and music with the homeless on a cold winter night. This was a beautiful way to prepare ourselves for Christmas. #TooBlessedToBeStressed
The Crew participated in a “yard blitz’ in cooperation with SAJE Senior Ministries. We spent four hours raking the yards of six different senior citizens in our neighborhood.
Our food collection for Scouting for Food netted about 225 boxes of food at just our parish collection point. Thanks to everyone who donated, collected, and boxed food. Locally this service project collects about 2 million cans of food every year. The food is stored at the St. Louis Area Foodbank for distribution to 500 […]
The Crew served over 120 meals at FOCUS Gateway City on September 4. This was especially timely since it was also the date of the canonization of Saint Teresa of Calcutta. Mark your calendars! Our next date to serve is Sunday December 4. All are welcome, whether you have teenagers or not.
See lots of photos from the long weekend The Crew spent in Chicago. We visited Millennium Park, the lakefront, Navy Pier, Chinatown, and Shedd Aquarium. We also enjoyed some Chicago style pizza. While we were in Chicago we took the opportunity to visit Fr. Mike Ford at the Dominican Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus.
The Crew attended Steubenville, a high-energy youth conference. Our high school students were invited to encounter Jesus Christ through dynamic speakers, engaging music, the Sacraments, and more.
After VBS was finished with the Slip n Slide, The Crew got to use it for one of our Team Time meetings. Thanks VBS leaders for letting the high school students enjoy the slip n slide also.
