Youth Ministry Team

In order to promote a sustainable youth ministry program for our parish, the youth ministry is in the initial stages of forming a youth ministry team. The team will consist of young adults between the ages of 19 and 39, who attend Mass at St. Therese of Lisieux R.C. Church every Sunday; who are Virtus trained in order to keep the youth of our parish safe; who understand the virtues of Christian living and are themselves examples for youth mentorship. Additionally, in order to promote diversity and inclusivity, the team seeks to include young adults from the 5p.m. (English) , 9a.m. (English) , 11a.m. (English)  and 1p.m. (Creole)  Masses.

Please send an email to if you wish to be a part of the team or speak to the Youth Ministry Director, Elaine Tontoh after Mass.

AISSA FLORA KONE (Youth Ministry Team Member)
My name is Aissa Flora Kone. I  joined Saint Therese of Lisieux Parish in 2015 and since 2018 have been serving as an usher at the 11:00 am Mass. Back home (Burkina Faso/ in West Africa), I was a  lector in my parish (Our Lady of Fatima/ Dassasgho) from 2009 to 2013. I have also been a catechist for Middle and High school students for 3 years.  I am thankful to God for this opportunity to be a part of the Youth Ministry Team of Saint Therese of Lisieux Parish. Being a member of this Ministry is another way for me to serve God through and with the youth.
