Middle School Faith Formation

Youth in grades 6-8 gather on Wednesday evenings, Sept to April, from 7-8:30pm to pray, grow in their relationship with Christ, and learn more about their Catholic faith. We begin each Wednesday with music and prayer in church led by our senior high worship team. Youth then meet in small groups until 8:30pm.

Activities during the year include the Fall NET Retreat, Pancake Breakfast, MEA Bonfire, Operation Christmas Child, Parent’s Night Out, Advent Brunch, Christmas Caroling, Interfaith Youth Day of Service, Easter Baskets for Keystone, Easter Egg Dyeing, End of Year Mass and Ice Cream Social.
