Kid Programs... Youth...
Christian Service Brigade

Do you long for adventure, excitement, good friends and the opportunity to learn new skills – the answer is Christian Service Brigade (CSB to its friends).

St. David’s action packed boy’s group will begin its weekly meetings at 7 PM on Monday, September 11th (meetings end at 8:30 PM). There will be many opportunities for fun and fellowship, including spirited games, participation in new activities, applying God’s principles to real life situations and friendship with a great group of guys who are looking forward to your joining them. Bring your friends; any boy from 9 to 18+ is welcome to join us for the meetings and/or the outings.

CSB ministers to the needs of youth in an action filled environment.  Activities include camping, canoeing, rock climbing, target shooting, snowboarding, gym overnights, x-country skiing, sledding, backpacking, and flying. 

Meetings are held on Monday evenings at 7:00 pm and end at 8:30 pm.  The meetings include a variety of activities as well as a time for spiritual reflection, personal growth, friendships, and applying God's principles to real life situations.  Membership is for boys ages 9 through 18+. Parish youth are also invited to bring their friends to be a part of this program.
