Christian Formation - Youth Ministry (Gr. 7-9)

DIRECTOR:  Bethanne Maus-Schaefer

We're excited to partner with you to continue your child's spiritual development from 7th grade through Confirmation. During these important teen years, we use videos and subsequent dialogue with the teens in lieu of textbooks and worksheets.  Prayer, the Sacraments, and service remain as key elements to assist you in directing your teen to become a confirmed member of our Catholic faith.

7th & 8th Grades
We offer Alpha for 7th and 8th graders every other year. In the opposite year, we will be using The Chosen video series.  The Chosen is a television drama based on the life of Jesus of Nazareth, created, directed and co-written by American filmmaker Dallas Jenkins.

9th Grade
The first semester we use the video series YOU—Life, Love and the Theology of the Body. The second semester we teach about moral decision-making and to the importance of making good decisions so that we can be Catholic role models.
