Y.E.S Project:

Youth Elect Service (Y.E.S.) is a faith based service project for the high school youth of St. John and St. Mary Catholic Parishes. Fr. Eric once said, “The Y.E.S. project helps remind our youth that we are called to go out and share our faith in the community by making a gift of ourselves to those who are in need.”

This is the sixteenth year for the Y.E.S. project! The dates this year are June 14-16, 2018. This weekend experience includes: attending Mass, receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation, traveling to area worksites, sharing their faith with other young Catholics, having fun, camping out, and putting their faith into action throughout our community.

At the worksites, the high school students complete various projects. In the past years, these projects have included: painting inside and outside, landscape work, various clean up jobs, built a carport and wheelchair ramp, tarring driveways, and even so much more.

Last year, 60 youth from both parishes, including a few from St. Michaels Ridge participated in the Y.E.S. project along with the help of 70 adult volunteers. Twelve work sites were used with over 1,500 hours donated in service to the elderly, disabled, and needy of our parishes and the Defiance community. Fr. Randy says, “The bond which develops between the young people and the home owners who welcome them into their yards, their homes, and their lives is fantastic and really serves to strengthen both of our parishes. Crossing generational barriers is a powerful and practical step in teaching our kids the work of both justice and charity.”

Registrations are now open for this year’s Y.E.S. Project –  June 14 – 16,2018! Please see below for youth and adult registration forms.
