High School Religious Formation 

Grades 9-12

Formation Classes for Teens have been revised. Starting this year we will be offering Life Teen. Life Teen is not an exclusive club and it's not just for Catholic Teens. Life Teen presents a variety of topics that challenge teens and provide them with the support they need. All high school students are welcome to join us!

 

Our goal is to provide the opportunity for young people to seek, know, and become Christ by accompanying you in your faith journey.

Note: Our Confirmation process starts Freshman year of High School. Teens who discern that they are ready for Confirmation will be able to get Confirmed their Junior Year of High School. 

Formation does not end after Confirmation. Newly confirmed and high school seniors are always welcome at Life Nights or help lead other teens.

Class Information

Life Nights 

Life Nights are the start of a teen's adventure as a disciple. Teens gather together to connect with caring teens and adults who discuss life,  listen to a message, and spend time in prayer. Life Nights are held after the 5:00 p.m. Mass once a month on Sundays at Nativity of the Lord Parish Hall and are open to ALL High School Students of any denomination who are interested in learning more about the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Every night is different. Every night is fun. But most importantly every night gives you the opportunity to be in an open, honest atmosphere where people will discuss the truth on REAL issues teens are wondering about today.

Summit 

Summit is Lectionary-based discipleship small groups that are designed to help teenagers gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for Sacred Scripture and the Holy Mass.  Small Groups consist of 8 to 10 teens and 2 core team members who meet weekly via Zoom to pray, discuss scripture, and walk with one another in our faith journey. Small groups are great for anyone desiring community and wishing to grow in their love for Jesus Christ and His Church.  Summit is open to all high school teens.

Sign-Up for Specific Small Groups Open in September after Kick-Off!
