Crusaders for Christ

CRUSADERS FOR CHRIST  is a youth group formed in 2006 for Junior High students (6th-8th Grades).  As Crusaders we imitate our parish patron, St. Martin of Tours, who was a soldier in his youth but left it to serve others for Christ.  We meet several times a year for spiritual and social activities.

Any 6th-8th Grader who wants to meet new friends, have a great time learning about being Catholic, socializing and serving others within a fun and relaxed setting can be a Crusader.  There are no dues nor mandatory attendance.  Come to the activities you can...chances are you'll want to come back again!  Our students make up a super group who have made great friendships.
