Youth Ministry in the Diocese of Colorado Springs is vibrant and alive! We are committed to the young people of this diocese in providing opportunities to learn and live their faith. We are dedicated to the goals set forth in the “RENEWING THE VISION” document which states:

Goal 1: To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.

Goal 2: To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.

Goal 3: To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.


Follow us on our Facebook page to connect with others around the Diocese.



The Diocesan Youth Board is a board made of teens from around our diocese that come together once a month to discuss and plan ways for young people to learn more about their faith and truly live it out not just within their own faith community, but with the community at large.

Thanks to all who volunteer their time to serve on this board!
