Our Jr. High (Grades 7 & 8) Faith Formation/Confirmation Preparation Program is entitled “Chosen”.Chosen offers young people an opportunity to experience their faith in an age-relatable way and view the Sacrament of Confirmation as the next step in their journey, not the end of one. Chosen uses faith-based gathering activities, large and small group catechesis, and prayer. In small groups, they break open the teachings and build solid, Christ-centered relationships that allow them to comfortably explore their Catholic faith and make it relevant to their everyday lives. Chosen prepares our youth both intellectually and spiritually to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation and to become lifelong disciples of Christ. All too often we see teens drift away from the Church after Confirmation. Chosen seeks to reverse this trend by winning over the hearts of teens at a critical time in their lives and keeping them firmly planted within the faith community of the Church.
Sessions meet on Wednesday evenings from promptly 6:45 PM to 8:15 PM. Each session consists of prayer, large group catechesis, and small faith groups. Adult teams plan both social and service events for our Jr. High youth. Sessions run from September to May.
