Meet the Youth Minister

Life Teen Program

Through powerful Eucharistic encounters and engaging catechesis, our EDGE (middle school) and Life Teen (high school) teens are immersed in a dynamically Catholic parish culture. With the parish as their true home, our teens are then further strengthened by our Summer Conferences, Events, Resources, and Digital (web and social media) evangelization.


Our goal is not only to provide “reach” today’s teens, but also to create an environment where Catholic teenagers feel supported and engaged the other 167 hours a week, outside of Sunday Mass.

As a youth ministry program, we seek to be deeply rooted in our Catholic identity and parish life.  IHM Youth Ministry provides a vibrant atmosphere for young people to learn about and live their faith through catechesis, service and experience.

Hey there!  My name is Matt and I am the Director of Youth Ministry for Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.  IHM is my home parish and I have been involved in the church for the past 15 years.


During my time in ministry, I have seen how important it is to lead teens to an encounter, an experience.  Teens today strive for authenticity and truth in their daily lives.  At IHM Youth Ministry, teens will always have an opportunity to experiece God through catechesis, service and events.
