High School Students
- Peer Ministry Discussion Group
High School students will begin meeting every Tuesday night from 7:30pm-9:00pm in the Parish Center beginning Tuesday, Oct. 12th. All Minster high school students are welcomed. Upper classman will be leading a casual open forum type of atmosphere with varied topics each week. Adults will be present for support and guidance. Having said that though, additional adult presence is needed. If you think you can offer a little bit of time here and there on a Tuesday please respond to petejblanc[at]aol[dot]com. No prep or any work is required, just be there to guide and support our high schoolers as they begin forming a youth ministry program.
- Bible Study
High School Bible Study will begin 7pm in Parish Center. We are using T-3: The Teen Timeline Bible Study. This series helps teens begin to understand the basic “story” of the Bible, how the 73 books go together. Contact Stacie Lamm for more info stacielamm[at]yahoo[dot]com.
- Via Dolorosa (Community event lead by youth)
On Good Friday at 10 am high school students from the St Augustine/St Joseph PSR will present a "Via Dolorosa" - Latin for "Way of the Cross." The Via Dolorosa, the road Jesus walked from the place of Pontius Pilate's sentencing to Golgotha, means "way of sorrows." Our version of the Via Dolorosa will begin at St. Augustine Church and wind its way through the streets of Minster, carrying a modified version of Christ's cross, ending once again at St. Augustine Church. The journey will finish before the 12:30 pm Good Friday services. All parishioners – young and not so young are invited to join us!
Junior High School Students
- A Bible Study is offered for students in grades 7 and 8. We will be using the T3: The Teen Timeline - The Gospel of Matthew. Our study meets every 2nd & 4th Sunday from 7:00pm-8:30pm. For more info contact Pete or Barb Blanco at barbpblanc[at]aol[dot]com

Kindergarten Through 4th Grade
- Little Flowers Girl's Club
We are offering an exciting way for young girls to learn more about our Catholic faith. The St. Augustine/St. Joseph Cluster is offering "The Little Flowers Girls' Club" for girls in kindergarten through fourth grade. The Little Flowers Girls' Club is a program whose goal is to help young girls gain strong self-esteem in being young Catholic girls. Our Catholic heritage has provided us with many role models for women to follow - the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Monica and many more!
Our sessions are held on the third Wednesday of each month in the St. Augustine/St. Joseph Parish Center. Each monthly meeting will begin immediately after school (3:05 for kindergarten through 3rd grade and 3:20 for 4th grade) until 5:00pm. Each session will include time for learning, time for playing, time for creating, and time for eating! Our last session for the school year is scheduled for April. If you are interesting in having your child participate, please fill out the attached registration form and permission form and return them to the Parish Center. The forms can be returned during religion class, dropped off at the Parish Center, or mail them. A $10.00 donation is requested.
We are also seeking adult help for the sessions. We would appreciate volunteers in a variety of positions. Please indicate on the attached volunteer sheet if you could help by chaperoning a session or sessions, or providing a snack or a drink for one of the sessions. We had over 50 participants last year and if every parent could help in one way or another we would have everything covered!
If you have further questions, please feel free to call Lisa Heid, 419/628-0832.
