Pat Clasby is just the latest Coordinator of Youth Ministry (CYM) to continue the long tradition of ministry with high school youth at Good Shepherd Parish. He has been the parish CYM since August of 2001 and has over 25 years of experience in the field. Pat is a founding member of the National Association of Catholic Youth Ministry (NACYML) & is a consultant for the youth office of the Diocese of San Diego. In addition to his duties at the parish, Pat coordinates the Diocesan High School Leadership Camps and the Diocesan Youth Rally. He has given workshops for the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry and spoken at Dioceses and parishes in Louisiana, California, Oregon, & Idaho. Pat is also the drummer for the local praise & worship band "Emmaus Blvd." He is married to his lovely bride Kate and together they raise their son, Lucas.
Now that you have a preview of Good Shepherd's youth life, we would like to invite all youth and adults to become more involved with us and the church. Please be sure to watch out for our upcoming Justice and Service Projects, including Bowling for Cans and St. Vincent de Paul's Soup Kitchen.
Parents, we encourage you to come join your children at our many upcoming events as a volunteer, chaperone, or just as a friend! Our activities are great combinations of work and play, all the while growing a stronger relationship with God and each other. Look for details on events in the weekly bulletin, or contact one of the organizers for more information.
