The Junior High School Religious Education Program is designed to promote positive adolescent development and growth in discipleship and Catholic identity within a youth-friendly community.
All Jr. High Classes (Confirmation Prep 1 & 2) meet on Wednesday evenings from 7:15 – 8:30 pm.
CATECHESIS / WORSHIP:
The junior high program will be using the Faith and Life religious education series. The Faith and Life series presents Catholic teaching using time-tested methods of catechesis and faith formation. Correlated with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, it features use of Scripture to complement the series’ presentation of Catholic doctrine and practices.

Dear Confirmand and Confirmation Parent,
The time of preparation for Confirmation is a truly blessed time both of learning more deeply about our Lord as well as going beyond ourselves to practice works of Christian Charity. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of which you will receive a deepening on your Confirmation day should impel us to even greater love of God in our words and, most importantly, in our actions. Beginning this year, we are implementing a new way of going about the service requirements that have always accompanied Confirmation preparation. The change is meant not only to give you more specific guidance in what Christian Service is but also emphasize that this service is something that is on-going and not a “one shot deal.” Our hope is that this will foster a virtue which will guide your lives throughout your life and encourage you to seek practical opportunities to put those gifts of the Holy Spirit into practice. May Almighty God bless you and keep you.
In Christ, Fr. Thomas Milota
