Ed Turner ~ Coordinator of Youth Ministry and Pastoral Associate


 Greetings!  Welcome to the Youth Ministry Page

Ed Turner is a graduate of St. Mary's College in Orchard Lake, Michigan where he received  a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Theology and Philosophy.  During his college years, he had the opportunity to go to Italy and experience the Vatican, St. Anthony's tomb and many other historical and spiritual places, first hand.   He also had the opportunity to spend time with the Franciscan's, Capuchin's, and Benedictine  Monks on vocational visits to experience monastic life in their communities during those years.  

Upon graduation, he began his ministry teaching Religion in an inner city school and moving on to Notre Dame Preparatory in Pontiac, Michigan. Being more of a free spirit, Ed decided to go into Youth Ministry which he had been doing for several years.  During the great recession when churches were making cutbacks, the Good Lord gave him a ministry in Chelsea, Michigan working with people having mental disabilities.  This was a very challenging and rewarding position giving him the opportunity  to nurture a very special group  of people and to Serve God as well.

Looking Ahead....


The High School Mission Trip will once again be going to Frenchville, Pennsylvania.  The dates are set for July 9th-July 15th.  Anyone interested in going can pick up the forms on the youth group bulletin board, or click here for the package.  There will be a Mission trip meeting in the near future once a date is decided upon.
