Participation in St. Leo the Great Youth Ministry activities does require you to register and have the appropriate forms filled out. Why? The safety of our youth is important to St. Leo the Great clergy, staff and volunteers. Additionally, the information also allows us to continue to support the students and parents and a way to ensure that upcoming events and activities are announced in a timely manner. We require that you fill out and submit both the Registration Form and the Medical Information Form.
In an effort to offset the cost of snacks, meals, youth ministry t-shirt and materials for youth events during the year, St. Leo’s does assess an Activity Fee. However, we will not turn a youth away if cost is an issue. We would ask that you contribute what you can. The activity fee structure also takes into account family with multiple participating children:
- Middle School: $60/youth
- High School: $85/youth
- Family (two or more students): $120/family
Other Potential Costs
St. Leo the Great Youth Ministry does do other off-site activities that may have a cost attached to them. The youth group does do fundraising throughout the year to help offset the costs. In order for you to plan ahead, those events may include:
- High School Youth Rally (October): $25
- Winter Retreat (February): $120
Nota Bene: The youth group does do fundraising throughout the year to help offset and lower the above stated costs.
