Students in Grades 6 & 7 meet at the same time as the Confirmation classes, one Sunday each month at 4:45 PM. Their Sessions will focus on the Bible and next year we will focus on the Church.
Parents should be aware, that students who enter the 8th grade for Confirmation who have not attended this middle school program will now have to repeat the 7th grade program.
Live Stations of the Cross: Again this year Grades 6 & 7 will be presenting a live Stations of the Cross on Good Friday (April 10, 12 noon rehearsal and 3pm Live Stations of the Cross) for the Parish Community. There will be a couple of practices prior to the Good Friday date, which will be announced. This is a part of their Faith Formation program. The goal of this addition to the program is to give our Middle School students a greater understanding of the sacrifice Christ made for us on the cross, so that the joy of Easter Sunday will be made more present to them.
ATTENDANCE: Students are expected to attend all monthly sessions and weekly Sunday Mass. Because we meet only once each month, there will be no excused absences except for a family emergency or a serious illness. At the Orientation Meeting on Sept. 17th students and parents will receive full information about class format and participation, etc.
MONTHLY YOUTH MASS: This has been the most well received change in our Confirmation Program last year and we will continue to include in our program this year. Parents and families are expected to join our students in these monthly Eucharistic Celebrations which will be prepared by the students who will also participate fully in the music, ushering, serving and all other aspects of the Mass. This Mass will fulfill their Sunday Mass obligation.
REGISTRATION & FEES:
$70 for the 1st student and $50 for each addition student.
