Core Team

The CORE Team is a group of adult and young adult Catholics who feel that the Lord is calling them to serve the young people of our Church. The CORE team is responsible for helping the parish community reach-out to teenagers to build up their faith lives.  CORE team members are an essential part of our Youth Ministry in Huntington Beach, and we believe that is important for teenagers to have reliable, fait-filled, and knowledgable adults in their life who will help them as they grow in faith at St. Vincent de Paul.

Responsibilities of Core team members:
  • Relational Ministry
  • Evangelization
  • Small Group Facilitation
  • Catechesis
  • Mentorship and Pastoral Care
  • Planning and Execution of Youth Ministry Events
  • Maintaining a Safe Environment for all Teens
  • Praying for and with teens
  • Attendance to Core Team Meetings and Life Nights

All who are interested in joining are invited to fill out the CORE Team Application and submit it to RG Garcia at  or Call (714) 842-3000 ext. 29.  For more immediate responses, please contact by email.

Confirmation Catechists

Confirmation is an important Sacrament for our community.  It is of utmost importance and responsibility for our parish to diligently and lovingly prepare our teens to receive the sacrament of Confirmation. Adult Catechists play an important role in this preparation process.  Since our Life Teen Youth Ministry and Confirmation Process are highly integrated, we allow adults to be part of both. If you are interested in becoming a Confirmation Catechist for our Confirmation Candidates please contact RG Garcia at : youth@svdphb.org

A Servant’s Heart
“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.”
