Offerings for Youth
8th - 11th Grades
Youth in Grades 8 through 11 will use the Journey to Adulthood (J2A) program for their curriculum. Youth in grades 8th and 9th will be in the Rite-13 program. And 10th & 11th graders will be in the J2A program. These groups will meet every Sunday morning from 9:45-10:30 am. These youth just completed their Pilgrimage to NYC this past June and are planning a Mission Trip for June of 2013. On Sunday mornings, 8th & 9th graders will meet in Room #7 and the 10th & 11th graders will meet in Room #8.
Journey to Adulthood (J2A)
The Journey to Adulthood program balances Bible study, prayer and both serious and playful activities to nurture the whole person during the challenging passage from childhood to adulthood. It is a program of spiritual formation for young people that includes exploration of how our relationship with God pertains to Self, Spirituality, Sexuality & Society.
12th grades are moving into that time period in their lives that requires them to consider What's Next? Our parish has planned a curriculum that will support them through scriptures and communication. Join us in room #9 at 9:45 a.m. Sundays to work toward answering this question.
