Welcome Team

We are very excited that you have chosen to join our team. We pray that the Holy Spirit guide our team in all we do.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful 
and enkindle in them the fire of your love.

V. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
R. And you shall renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray. 
O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, 
did instruct the hearts of the faithful, 
grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise 
and ever to rejoice in His consolation. 
Through Christ our Lord.

What is the ArchNY Youth Team?
The ArchNYs Youth Team is a motivated, energetic group of teens who come from different areas and backgrounds in the Archdiocese of NY and who want to contribute their talents and voices to keep their peers connected to each other and to their faith.

What does the ArchNY Youth Team actually do?
Members of the ArchNY Youth Team share their experiences with the Office of Youth Ministry to help plan existing events like New York Catholic Youth Day (NYCYD) and Revolution of Change (RoC) service opportunities. Their fresh perspectives also influences decisions on new events and programs. This is an opportunity for you to let your voice be heard and get your hands dirty – helping you and your peers grow closer to the Lord and the work of His Church. Members of the youth team also take on tangible responsibilities and roles in planning and running youth events in the archdiocese.
