St. Francis Xavier Youth Ministry - Letter to the Parents

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the St. Francis Xavier's youth ministry programs! I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and share a little bit about our ministry with youth.

First, let’s get acquainted! My name is David Patterson and I serve as the Youth Minister for elementary school and high school youth. I live with my family in Pickering, Ontario.

I have had the privilege of meeting and building relationships with so many families here at St. Francis Xavier's and I look forward to getting to know your family better as well. There are many, varied opportunities for youth to build community, grow in faith, get connected to parish life, participate in service, and learn more about our Catholic identity. The youth programs provides a safe, welcoming place for your child to have fun and have faith!

Please encourage your son or daughter to be involved in our parish. We are well aware of the sacrifices and stress that parents are under. I can assure you that we are working hard and doing our best to provide quality programs and meaningful experiences.

Thank you for allowing us to be a partner in ministry with your child. This is truly a ministry that we share and therefore your input and communication is vital and appreciated!

My door is always open. If there are ever any questions, comments, or ideas you’d like to share with me, please feel free to do so!

God bless you and your family!

in Christ,

David Patterson

Youth Minister
