St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Parish

Junior High Youth Ministry

Junior High Youth Ministry has two main focuses. The first focus is our faith formation for seventh and eighth graders. It is modeled after religious education guidelines put forth by the United States Bishops, so there is a strong catechetical basis.  The Seventh Grade spends the year learning from “The Catholic Connections Handbook” while building fellowship with their classmates and finding new ways to be engaged in their faith in a fun and passionate way! The Eighth Grade spends the year preparing for Confirmation, by using the Chosen series from Ascension Press.  Through these weekly classes, the Junior High students are given new and exciting opportunities to build relationships with their peers, teachers, and Jesus Christ!

The second section will be our involvement in Archdiocese and parish-based Junior High programs. One of these programs is AWAKE from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.  More information can be found here: More Information about AWAKE

There is a $65 fee for the junior high youth ministry program and an additional $30 Sacramental Fee for Confirmation students.


Junior High Youth Night meets after the 6:00 p.m. Mass on Sunday nights and runs 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Parish Center.
