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.
Some recent activities - GLOW! Crusaders spent a few hours on a Saturday afternoon to socialize, have lunch, learn about faith and service, and made about 20 comfort blankets for people in need. It was a fun afternoon for the Crusaders and a warm blessing to others. St. Martin, who shared his soldier's cloak with a poor man, would be happy with our young people.
