Caring for those who need it the most – Youth Leadership Team

Guardian Angels Youth Leadership Team (YLT) extended an invitation to GA Students to join them in a Christmas Craft event on Wednesday December 21st after school. Students and YLT members had a great time making fleece blankets, achieving their goal of 10 blankets to be donated to children in the hospital this Christmas. Materials were funded by GA Parish and labor donated by a group of GA students ranging from 1st to 8th grade, under the guidance of Youth Leadership Team members.

Why are we doing this?
YLT decided to do this project because, as a group, we thought that we should help children have a Merry Christmas, even if there are struggles going on in their lives. We hope that this helps show others to always help those in need.

What are YLT’s expectations for the future?
We hope to make all the youth in our GA community to feel included and have a deeper connection with Christ. We hope to make this Christmas Craft Fleece Blankets a new annual tradition at GA Parish going forward.

Blankets were delivered to Ridgeview Emergency & Urgent Care at Two Twelve  Medical Center in Chaska on Friday December 23rd. Emergency department staff were very excited about the donation and said: “the children will love them”

Youth Leadership Team (YLT)

YLT is beginning as a pilot program this year. We are a team of 6-10 members from the parish, who will actively serve in outreach ministry to the church by working directly with Father Ortega. We will complete projects that Father gives us, and also help Father spread and teach faith, hope, and love throughout our community. We are meant to act as a communication link between Father and the youth of the parish.


“We are excited to get started and actively participate and work with the youth of the GA Parish.”
