  • Mission:
  • The Catholic Youth Ministry Center at Morgan Park High School exists to provide guidance for students attending Morgan Park High School. By promoting moral values, the Center reaches out to students, faculty and the community in the roles of advocate, counselor, teacher and friend.

    The Catholic Youth Ministry Center is a unique youth program based on the concept of the Newman Centers on many college campuses. Morgan Park High School is a Chicago Public High School of 1,800 students on the south side of Chicago. All students are welcome at the Ministry Center, regardless of race, religion, age, or grade. Our Ministry Center is the only program of its kind associated with a Chicago Public High School. We are proud to be an integral part of the high school community.

  • History:
  • In 1977, members of the Beverly, Morgan Park, and Mount Greenwood communities gathered to brainstorm on how best the community could support our local public high school and the dream of the Catholic Youth Ministry Center was born. Through the tremendous efforts of many community members, our facility was purchased and renovated. Dedication was held on September 30, 1979. Throughout our thirty year history, thousands of young people have participated in our programs.

    As the needs of our young people have changed, so too have our programs. Young people know best what interests them so our Leadership Group, a core group of twenty to twenty-five young people, offer programming and workshop ideas. This method of collaboration has proven to be very successful and offers our young people a sense of ownership and investment in the Center.

    When the Ministry Center began, seven local Catholic parishes provided all of the financial support for our programs. In just a few short years, as those parishes faced their own budget issues, the support diminished. We were fortunate to receive a grant from the State of Illinois and, later, the City of Chicago to have allowed us to continue to offer and to improve our programs. Despite the current difficult economic times, we continue our efforts to provide valuable programs to our young people.
