PLEASE NOTE: One of the biggest changes in ministries this year, is the Sacrament of Confirmation is now open to students 7th grade and older! See below for more information!
This year as we continue to navigate the every-changing challenges of COVID, we also get to welcome the ability to gather with more space as our construction finishes! We are excited to gather as community again and have spent a lot of time praying and discerning the direction to take ministries this year. We are relying heavily on the Holy Spirit's guidance and are excited about some new avenues to grow in faith and community together!
As of 9/11/2022 (subject to change) here is a breakdown of how ministries will work.
Grades 7-12* NEEDING Sacraments:
Confirmation (7th grade and older) will begin Confirmation Prep October 2nd. This ministry will happen Sundays at 1:15pm, following the 12:15pm Mass. We will provide a pizza lunch and run from 1:15pm-2:45pm. The program will run through December with the Confirmation Mass happening in January or February. Those that are interested after Confirmation, will be invited to join Youth Ministry in January in the form of small groups (no additional fees). If a teen also needs baptism and/or 1st Communion - there will be some additional prep. The resource fee for this program is $25.
PLEASE NOTE: We currently have a waitlist started for this ministry. Due to delays in construction, we are limited in our space for ministry. We have started a waitlist for anyone wanting to register still and will entertain the idea of offering a winter 2023 confirmation session too if it makes sense to do so.
Middle School (Grades 6-8) & High School (Grades 9-12) Youth Ministry:
Due to an increase in registration for Confirmation (as the age was lowered to 7th grade) paired with ongoing delays in construction, we will not be able to offer youth ministry in the fall following the 12:15pm Mass. We hope to offer some Monday, after-school social time for teens in October- more information to come! In January of 2023 we will look forward to offering youth ministry following the 12:15pm Sunday Mass.
