Youth and Young Adult Ministries

"It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise." -- St. John Paul 2

SKD Confirmation

Confirmation is the beginning, not the end. It is the start to a life immersed in the beauty of the Sacraments, the community of believers and service of others. It is a two-year program. Topics include: Salvation History, Scripture, the Holy Mass, and more. 

Please talk to Paul Padilla for more information and how to enroll in the program.

Be sure to join us for our next LIFE NITE on October 2, 2020, 6-8 PM, in the SKD Youth Center. Our kickoff may have great, but our entire school year will continue to get better and better!

Edge - Middle School

We are only a week away from our Edge “Go Big or Stay Home Kickoff.” All 6th-8th graders
are invited to join us Friday, September 25, from 6 to 8 PM in the Youth Center. If you're in Middle School, make sure you join us as we kickoff our new year!


Called together by Jesus Christ, who came to restore us to friendship with the Father, we continue the work of our Savior to bring salvation to all peoples through the life-giving Church He established.


Inspired by the example of St. Katharine Drexel, we strive to serve the Lord by:


  • Making the Eucharist the source and summit of our lives

  • Building intentional community

  • Preaching the Gospel to the people of Amador County

  • Forming missionary disciples

  • Reaching out to those in need
