Hi! My name is Joan Lile, and I am excited to be starting my 16th year as Youth Minister at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, 25th year in ministry.  Youth Ministry here at IHM provides Spiritual, Service and Social programs and activities for youth in 7th through 12 grades. We have information on our web site for college activities run through the Archdiocese.   The ministry provides programs that foster the development of Catholic values in the lives of our parish youth as they move from the dependence on family to independence in young adulthood.

Thanks for checking out our site. Our Monthly News page has all the happenings going on dates and fees. Our Jr. and Sr. High pages outline all the activities offered during the year. The Confirmation page explains our programs and contains the schedule. You can also check the parish calendar for all our dates.
