CYO meets every Sunday (except as noted in our schedule) at 5:30 pm for supper and from 6:00—7:00 pm for the program. Special events, service projects, social nights, summer camps, trips, and retreats are also planned throughout the year.
Our focus is on spiritual enrichment as well as having fun with friends. The St. Mary CYO is a group of teens who come together to serve and praise God while strengthening their faith life through prayer, service and friendship. Parents/Guardians participate in the program by helping with the meal, serving as chaperones, and sharing any other gifts and talents they feel called to share.
Another important aspect of CYO is the group’s participation in diocesan youth activities and special events like Abbey Youth Fest, Catholic Heart Work Camp, and more. These events allow St. Mary teens to meet and be encouraged by their peers, not only in the Natchez area, but all over the country!
