St. Clement of Rome CYO

St. Clement CYO is a group of teens in grades 8-12 who together serve and praise God while strengthening their faith life through prayer, service and friendship. The most visible and consistent gathering is the weekly 5:00pm Sunday Mass. Here, teens have the opportunity to serve through singing in the youth choir, being a lector, Eucharistic minister, or usher. Our CYO meets regularly after the 5 PM Mass.

Other events include service, social, spiritual, or sports events. St. Clement CYO is also a regular participant in Archdiocese of New Orleans CYO sports leagues, including volleyball, basketball, football and cabbageball.

Another important aspect of CYO is the group's participation in archdiocesan youth events like World Youth Day and Abbey Youth Fest, and an annual summer mission trip to San Antonio, TX.

Our CYO also periodically participates in trips like NCYC, and March for Life. These events allow St. Clement's teens to meet and be encouraged by their peers, not only in the New Orleans area, but all over the country!
