CATHOLIC YOUTH ORGANIZATION
CYO Sports is more than just a sports program—it is a ministry.
It is just one component of our parish’s comprehensive youth ministry program which enables the partnership of parents, coaches, priests, religious, teachers and adult leaders to manage and support a sports program that allows youth to grow in their relationship with God and come to better understand themselves and the Catholic faith.
Our CYO programs employ
healthy and enjoyable competition to promote the sharing of gospel values among athletes, parents, and coaches assists parish leadership in nourishing the emotional, spiritual, social, and physical needs of young people encourages young people to appreciate the gifts that they possess and challenges them to share these gifts with their community.
CYO at St. Mary Magdalen also allows youth to witness the life of Christian discipleship in their coaches and
adult leaders and encourages youth to become responsible
members of their faith community.
