The Middle School Youth Group is offered for 7th & 8th Grade students on Sunday from 6:15 until 8:15 PM in the school gym (Duffy Center). Registration for takes place during the month of August. Classes begin in September on the first Sunday after Labor Day. Meetings are structured in the Youth Ministry learning model so that the students are challenged spiritually, intellectually, and kinesthetically. The schedule consists of two weekends a month of classroom catechesis, one weekend of a service project, and one weekend of a social event. Each week the group gathers for socialization and prayer before the scheduled class or event.
There are also Diocesan weekend retreats planned for these students. They get together with youth from all over the Diocese to experience fellowship and faith enrichment in a dynamic and inspiring setting. This is one of the many ways we help to encourage our young people on their faith journey through Confirmation and beyond.
Prior to weekly meetings, members are expected to participate in the ministries at the 5 PM LifeTeen Mass. Students from this group make up the Confirmation class for the coming year. Contact the parish Youth Minister or Director of Religious Education (see Parish Staff Listing) for more details.
