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 Archdiocese Information about AWAKE
There is a $65 fee for the junior high youth ministry program and an additional $30 Sacramental Fee for Confirmation students.
WHEN AND WHERE DO WE MEET?
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.
2019 Confirmation Retreat on February 2, 2019
On February 2, we had 43 Confirmation Candidates and 11 High School Retreat Leaders that gathered in the Parish Center for their Confirmation Retreat! The day was full of fellowship, prayer, student and adult witness talks, small group time, an opportunity for Reconciliation, and ended with attending the 4:00 Mass as a group! However, one of the main highlights of the day was the live music performed by Justin Wright, James Wright, and Thomas Windholtz! The Parish Center was certainly rocking on Saturday afternoon!
