St. Martin of Tours - Valley City, Ohio

About Us: Crusaders for Christ

St. Martin’s youth group for 6-8th grade students started in 2006. We are a group which meets several times a year for retreats and social activities. The youth group previously went by the name of "PI" (the never-ending number representing our never-ending love for God) but now go by the name of "Crusaders for Christ."

Who is in the Crusaders for Christ group?

Any student in 6-8th grade who wants to share our faith with old and new friends, have great time learning about our faith, and socializing within a fun and relaxed setting can be part of our group. There are no dues, no mandatory attendance. Come to the activities you can…chances are you’ll want to come to as many as possible! Our students make up a super group who have formed great friendships.
