Face Tough Questions
Middle School Ministry
The main purpose of our Middle School youth group is to help our kids become better connected to Jesus Christ. We focus on the person and teachings of Jesus, exploring and discussing the Gospel stories. We meet twice a month, for about an hour. Every first Sunday of the month, we have a simple Bible study and discussion. This meeting is for the parents as well as the kids, so that faith is cultivated together, as a family. On the third Sunday of each month, the kids meet independently of their parents. This gathering is more social - including games, snacks and various fun activities.
What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is the third sacrament of initiation for Catholics, following Baptism and First Communion. Often misunderstood as a kind of “Catholic graduation,” Confirmation marks the individual’s new journey into the faith, where they will receive more fully the Holy Spirit and become an active missionary for Jesus Christ and the Gospel. The Confirmation process takes place at the age of reason (grade 10 and above), so that a person can truly understand the beliefs of the Church, make an informed decision to remain Catholic, and commit themselves to following Jesus for the rest of their life.
High School Ministry
This fall (2022) we are starting a new High School Discipleship Group recommended for any high-schooler who is enthusiastic about taking their faith to the next level. It's aimed at those who want their Catholic Faith to impact every part of their life, and not just be another part of their life. We will have meaningful conversations about God & faith with other Catholic peers. We will think about how our beliefs inform who we are, out there, in a world that's increasingly hostile to religion. We want our young paper to be well prepared to hold onto their faith, before they go off to college.
