Religious Education (Grade 7)

7th grade religious education occurs on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00pm at the parish. The curriculum consists of Pope John Paul 2’s teaching on Theology of the Body for Teens. There will also be service and social opportunities throughout the year.

Confirmation (Grades 8 – 10)

The preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation begins in 8th grade and runs through the beginning of sophomore year in high school. Students will receive the sacrament in the fall of their sophomore year. We use the Chosen program by Ascension press which includes prayer, scripture, dynamic videos, discussion, challenges, stories, saint of the week, and icebreakers for each session.

The students meet in the homes of their small group leaders twice a month usually on Sundays. Our focus is to help teens grow in their personal relationship with Christ, increase their knowledge of the faith, the church, and scripture, so that they are equipped to become adult disciples of Christ in our faith community.
