Youth Ministry 6-11

The Youth Ministry Program is for children from Grades 6-11.

Classes are held Wednesday evenings from 7:00pm to 8:15pm.  There will be an Open House on the first Wednesday during the normal class time so you can come and meet your teacher, pick up your information packet, and ask any questions you may have.

The Director of Religious Education is Ms. Jodi Murphy.

Our Youth Ministry program includes a strong emphasis on knowledge of the Catholic faith, involvement in prayer experiences and outreach activities.  Service opportunities like yard clean up and serving at a soup kitchen are offered.  Students receive the sacrament of Reconciliation each year, attend Mass and take part in prayer services.

The text books used for these grades are:

Grade 6          "Theology of the Body for Teens" and "Altaration", by Acension Press
