Who Are We
The God Squad (TGS) is the youth group of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Alton, IL.
St. Mary’s God Squad strives towards the evangelization of our youth to live as disciples of Jesus Christ through a responsible participation in the parish community, the reception of the sacraments, faith formation and igniting a healthy fellowship with their peers.
The God Squad is led by a priest of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary (OMV) assigned to St. Mary's Parish, together with a team of adult mentors and young adult leaders. Since Fall 2018, Fr. Paul Nguyen, OMV.
