Mission Statement

Our mission is to respond to the social and spiritual needs of the teens in our parish by providing spirit filled programs, activities, and events that will allow them to express their faith as they encounter Christ and deepen their love for the Church and sacraments.


  • To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
  • To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
  • To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person

Based on the mission and values of the Catholic Church and the Diocese of Baton Rouge, we will strive to meet these goals by:

  • Providing opportunities for the youth to experience the larger Church community as members of the Body of Christ.
  • Connecting our youth to other young people that share their Catholic faith.
  • Planting seeds of discipleship for our youth to grow into strong Catholic leaders.
  • Impacting young people through the message of the Gospel to create young men and women who love Jesus and His Church.
  • Using age appropriate resources to excite, inspire, capture and ignite young people for Jesus.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to develop young faith-filled Catholic people, transformed in mind, heart, and spirit, on fire for Christ. We value the active support and involvement of parents and community as we strive to implement this vision.

The purpose of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel's Youth Ministry Program is to create environments that enhance opportunities for our youth to explore truth, express faith, experience God, and embrace community.
