What’s available for Middle School students?

Our middle school program meets on Wednesday nights for Journey of LiFFe, from 6:15-7:45 p.m. This is where teens come together for weekly community building activities that will continue to develop their Catholic faith. We learn in small groups and grow spiritually together in our prayer life as we experience opportunities of praise & worship and participate in prayer circles. We respond to the needs of others by discovering the call to justice and service! Service nights will be a great opportunity for students to learn more about what they can do to for others as a reflection of Christ. We have faith-filled retreats, social events, and service projects. All 6th through 8th graders (parish school, public school, home school, parishioners, friends of parishioners) are welcome at ALL Youth Ministry events.  Check out the schedule here.
