Holy Ghost Youth Ministry

Join YOUTH MINISTRY...ALL are welcome!

Holy Ghost Catholic Church offers a diverse Jr. High and High School Youth Ministry that is based on the Gospel teaching that Jesus is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE

CONFIRMATION CLASSES are in person and are on schedule. Due to discovered damage in the Youth House, classes will be in the Parish Hall. 

Welcome to our new Youth Minister!


We are so happy to welcome Mrs. Melissa Berghausen and her family to Holy Ghost Parish!


Melissa finds her greatest joy in seeing lives transformed by the power of prayer. She and her husband have a daughter and have recently moved from Louisville, Kentucy and New Albany, Indiana where she ministered as the director of youth ministry. Melissa has ministered in parishes in the areas of spirituality, social, and service.


Adopted and raised into a devout Catholic family, Melissa earned her B.A. from Southeastern Louisiana University in Kinesiology. She has ministered in many facets of her life which has continued to call her to minister to the young church. Melissa enjoys all kinds of sports, hanging out with her family and friends, watching movies, learning new things, and most of all, being a wife and a mother!

Congratulations to these young men and women who received the

Sacrament of Confirmation by Bishop Duca on Monday, October 12th!

May the Holy Spirit continue to grow and dwell in you, may you be the hands and feet of Christ here on earth! God bless you!

Immediate Confirmation Prep

We look forward to preparing you for this sacrament!

FAMILY CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK: Pick a Scripture, Share and Discuss!

We appreciate everyone praying for Teens.

Thank you Mayeaux Family for sharing your prayer with us!

Our youth group peer ministers  wanted to share scripture of HOPE with all during the COVID19 quarantine... 

And so we thank the Lord for such a time and trust in His ways.

CHECK YOUR KIDS’ PHONES -15 apps parents need to know about. (Six of them were used by suspected predators who were recently arrested.)

  • The first is 'MeetMe,' an app where teens can easily be in contact with users much older than them, with an emphasis on dating.
  • 'WhatsApp' and 'SnapChat' are for messaging, but what you should know is teens can send unlimited messages, have video chats and even share their live location with other users, people they may not even know. 
  • 'Skout' is a flirting app that's used to meet and chat with new people. Teens and adults are in different groups, but ages aren’t verified. 
  • 'TikTok' is used for sharing user created videos that can contain bad words, even adult content.
  • 'Badoo' and 'Bumble' are dating apps for adults, but teens can still find ways to join. 
  • 'Grindr' is geared towards the LGBTQ community. It allows users to share photos and meet up based on phone’s GPS location.  
  • 'Kik' is specifically for kids, but anyone can join and anyone can contact or direct message your child. 
  • 'LiveMe' is a live streaming app, but you don’t know who’s watching and your kids location is revealed.
  • 'Holla' is all about connecting strangers around the world through video chat. Enough said. 
  • 'Whisper' is a social confessional where kids can remain anonymous, but still share their feelings. And it can reveal your child’s location for a meet up. 
  • 'ASKfm' encourages people to allow anonymous users to ask them questions, which opens the door for online bullying.
  • 'Hot or Not' rates users on attractiveness.. There’s no age verification and users can send each other messages. 
  • And lastly, 'Calculator%' apps are several secret apps that allows kids to hide their photos, videos, even browser history.
