The Mount Hope Youth Council seeks to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission and work of faith in the community. We strive to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person and their faith by living and working for justice, peace, and human dignity in our communities.


The Mount Hope Youth council focuses on four Ministry settings including:

  • Youth Programming
    • Our program focuses on working with students in 6th- 9th grade
  • Family Ministry
    • We look to foster engagement by incorporating whole families
  • Involvement in Church Life
    • Developing a sense of belonging in the church as well as church programs
  • Collaboration with Community
    • Our focus is on community service both in and out of the church setting

Our program is just as much about developing religious young Catholics as it is developing well rounded service oriented young adults.


Beginning as the St. Dominic’s Youth Council, our small group of teens and adults has grown together for many decades and is now opening its doors for all members of the Mount Hope Catholic Community.
