Junior High -- Faith Formation

The Junior High Faith Formation program is another voyage of the Jr Highers’ lifelong journey of faith!  We meet on Sundays from 4:00 pm – 5:20 pm, finishing in time for families to attend 5:30 pm Mass. 

Our EDGE Evenings begin with all the 6th -8th graders together to hear the message of our faith presented to all the Jr Highers in large group. Then the Jr Highers go to their small groups, by grade level, to dig deeper into what was presented by discussing, faith sharing, and exploring our Catholic traditions.

Throughout the year there are more opportunities for workshops, rallies, retreats and social activities – see below for any upcoming events.

The common goal for all three grade levels is to help the Jr Highers deepen their knowledge and love for Jesus!

The Quest is a leadership program designed for youth in grades 6th - 8th.
