MEDFORD — The youth ministry program at Sacred Heart Parish is booming.
Newly hired youth minister Whitney Compton reports that the parish already has 48 youths signed up to attend the Steubenville Northwest Conference in Spokane, Wash., this summer.
On April 27, the parish held its first fundraiser, dubbed the Mile Marker. All proceeds will help fund travel expenses, because this year the parish plans to charter a bus to transport the many children interested in attending the summer conference.
The youth ministry members participated in another event, Project Revamp: Phase Two, during which young folks from the parish cleaned, primed and painted the youth ministry room.
