Welcome to IHM's 

Catholic Youth Ministry page! 

Catholic Youth Ministry (CYM) responds to needs of young people and encourages the sharing of their unique gifts with the larger community. Efforts are directed at fostering the total personal and spiritual growth of young people while drawing them into responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith community.

Elizabeth Jara is our CYM Director.  Please contact her at youthdir@ihmnlr.org with any questions you may have.


Our Youth Mass is held at a special 5pm Mass on the first or second Sunday of the month.  Greeters, ushers, lectors, altar servers, and Music Ministry will all be supported by the IHM CYM youth.  The Mass is open to all parishioners.  Immediately following Mass, the Junior and Senior CYM and their families will gather for dinner and fellowship. Below is the fall 2019 schedule.
