Youth Ministry Leader Resources

The John Giannuzzi Youth Ministry Resource Library

Located at the St. John Paul II Youth Retreat Center is a great treasure for all those that walk with the young church.

The Library has a small conference table, a TV with a DVD player, a computer station with a printer and a room full of resources that you can sit and read through or that you can borrow for a short period of time.

We have materials from publishers such as St. Mary’s Press, Life Teen,  the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, Youth Specialties, St. Ignatius Press and Ascension Press.

Currently the Library is divided up into sections of Prayer/ Worship, Retreats, Meeting help, Confirmation, General Youth Ministry, Skits, Icebreakers, Ministry Programming/ administration, Hispanic Ministry, Young Adult Ministry, DVD’s, reference material, and manuals.

We have also added some history to the library with some old pictures we came across of the facility as it looked in the early 1950’s, and 60’s.

We encourage you to stop by and visit!   The Library is open Monday – Friday from 9am to 4:30pm.  If you would like to visit in the evening we can make arrangements.  

To schedule an appotinment to visit the Library please contact Rich Donovan at or 201-998-0088 ext 4150.

A special THANK YOU to the generous donation from Mr John Giannuzzi that helped us to be able to provide this resoruce to Youth Ministry Leaders.
