Youth and Young Adults

Youth Ministry

We're excited to offer vibrant programs for the youth and young adults of our parish to help them give back, experience fellowship, and advocate for their Faith! Join us as we extend a helping hand to our community and neighbors, pray together, learn together, and grow together with Christ at the forefront of our minds and souls.

It's always a good time to give back, and now, more than ever, our parish and community needs your help! 
  • Food Pantry: Help those in need safely secure the supplies and assistance they need to get through the week. Contact Margi at (412) 343-1915 to see how you can help the Saint Winifred Food Pantry in their efforts to minimize hunger in our community. 
  • Mass Ministries: Ever considered being an altar server or lector for Mass? Contact Mary Weaver at (724) 814-2077 to get involved in our Mass Ministries and give to the Lord during the most holy sacrifice of the Mass each week. 
  • Social Outreach: Many of our parishioners are unable to leave their residence. Our Social Minister, Joan Kilgore, is looking for youth and young adults to help to connect with these parishioners and let them know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. Contact Joan to get involved at (412) 531-5964.
