Youth Ministry at DBCR is first of all, to help our school community, especially our students, to live Jesus in the best way possible according the Salesian Spirituality. To live Jesus is the foundation of all we do at DBCR. That spirituality is rooted the Preventive System which consist of Reason, Religion, and Loving-kindness, that way they may be Good Christians and Upright Citizens, which is the legacy St. John Bosco left us. We shall live this spirituality, The Preventive System and being Good Christians and Upright Citizens, based on the four pillars of our school, Faith, Family, Fun and Future.
Following the ways of St. John Bosco, Youth Ministry at DBCR embraces the whole student allowing them to walk their journey of faith. The Salesian spirit is permeated through our school, encouraging all of our students to “Be Who They Are and Be It Well”.
Youth Ministry Team
The Youth Ministry Team is comprised of selected members of faculty, staff, student body, and lay collaborators from the educative and pastoral community of Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School and Corporate Work Study Program. It is formed, organized, and coordinated by the Coordinator of Youth Ministry (CYM).
The Youth Ministry Team members are individuals who together with the Coordinator of Youth Ministry provide vision, direction, planning, support, organization, implementation and evaluation of youth ministry program, religious and fun activities, and Salesian Family events.
The Youth Ministry Team creates and provides opportunities to meet Christ with the school community promoting a sense of family and ultimately prepares them to live a life with God in its center. The Youth Ministry Team embraces the four pillars of our school; Faith, Family, Future and Fun. These pillars allow for our members and the greater DBCR community to meet Christ in all that we do.
The overall goal of the Youth Ministry Team is to ensure that the students of Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School and Corporate Work Study Program know and experience the love of our Lord through the witness of our Salesian Community.
