Parents are encouraged to enroll their children into our Faith Formation program every year that they are in school. This way the students can continue to grow in their faith as they mature throughout their teen years. We offer the following schedule:
Immediately following the 11:30 Mass, a small lunch is provided for the Youth so they can attend Mass and go right into classes. FAST Lunch is provided by families or teams of families who bring in or cook in our kitchen a quick meal for the students. If you are interested in signing up please contact Yvette Crumly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Classes for 7th-12th grade run from 1:00-2:15.
The 7th grade curriculum is by RCL Benziger and focuses on the story of Jesus. The 8th grade material is the Teen Timeline from Ascension Press which takes the students through the entire Bible. The 9th graders focus on Scripture, the Beatitudes and Prayer. Finally, students in 10th grade and older are invited to participate in Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. For more information on Confirmation please visit the page here.
Currently we do not have a class for 11th and 12th graders who have been confirmed, but are looking for volunteers to begin an informal "session" for youth that have been confirmed. We'll be discussing relevant topics and how they relate to our faith. This group will also be the foundational group for the Confirmation Retreat team. Please contact Yvette Crumly if you are interested in leading (adults) or participating (teens) in this group.
