Youth Ministry


 Youth Ministry Coordinator BIO


Originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, Nicole has been involved in youth ministry since she was 18 years young. Now 28, she strives to set the bar high for our Youth Ministry and Formation programs here at SSJ. She attended Northwestern State University graduating with a B.S. in Psychology and Addiction Studies. Nicole is currently working on her Masters of Catechetics and Evangelization through Franciscan University of Steubenville.

She has surrendered to the Lords call and has taken on Youth Ministry as a full time job after teaching College Psychology. Nicole is forever grateful to be part of the family here at SSJ where her openness to Gods Will allows hope for others of their faith journey.

Sts. Simon and Jude Youth Ministry is changing a bit for the 2017-2018 formation year! We will have one Coordinator of Youth Ministry who will be reconstructing the youth program by splitting Junior High Youth Ministry (5th-8th) and High School (9th-11th) by intergrading a more interactive and relational program. All Youth Ministry Formation will be on Sundays from 4p-5:30p concluding with the Mass for youth at 5:45pm. Optional youth nights and activities will continue during the school year. Please contact the SSJ Youth Ministry Office with any further questions.
