Middle School Youth

We meet the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 5:30pm in the Parish Hall. Middle school youth is focused on Scripture and the Eucharist. We also have social nights and service nights, an opportunity to grow community outside our weekly meetings! We welcome students of all faiths from all schools.

Our mission is simple; to Love God, Love Others and Make Disciples. We not only teach the important aspects of the Catholic faith, but also how they apply to our lives as pre-teens in a secular world. We focus on the why, not just the what. We are a youth group, not a theology class, and promise our nights will feel like that. Featuring games, food, community, Scripture, and sacraments - our nights are both fun and filling. We look forward to seeing you there!

We are deeply rooted in the sacraments. We regularly provide opportunities for Reconciliation, Mass, Adoration, and more.

 A well formed junior high will reap many benefits for a parish as a whole. Studies show that formation in the junior high age group leads to a higher number of vocations and lower church dropout levels as students grow older.

Not Just Wednesdays

We will take trips, have retreats, do lock-ins, and more fun things. Not a one night a week group, but a group focused on bringing kids to Christ in many dynamic ways.
