Faith Formation 7th - 11th Grade
Our Faith Formation for 7th-11th Grade meets on Wednesday nights from 7:15-8:30pm. Students are welcome to gather in the gym starting at 6:45pm to socialize or play basketball. This year we are doing a new program called Life Teen. Through Life Teen, teens are immersed in a dynamically Catholic parish culture with catechists who are teaching and meeting the teens where they are at. The goal of this program is to create an environment where Catholic teenagers feel supported, engaged, and needed in their own parish. A typical Faith Formation night will include ice breaker games, large group talks or videos, and small group discussions.
During the year, we have two Reconciliation/Adoration Services where the teens are given the chance to go to confession, pray in adoration, and listen/sing along to the praise and worship music. One is during Advent and the other is during Lent.
The 7th-11th grade will be participating in Life Teen as a large group. The 11th Grade will also spend the year focusing on preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation through choosing a sponsor and doing numerous required activities with them, choosing a Confirmation Saint, participating in a Confirmation Retreat, and having set aside class time to discuss what Confirmation really means and how it makes you an adult in the church.
