Youth Ministry



High School Students

  • 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!
