Welcome to the OLMC CYO Home Page

CYO Mission Statement and Philosophy:

CYO sports is one component of a 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.
Such a program:
•             Employs 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.
•             Allows youth to witness the life of Christian discipleship in their coaches and adult leaders.
•             Encourages youth to become responsible members of their faith community.
