Answering the Call to Discipleship for Youth & Families
Through the anointing at our baptism, we are marked as Christians, Disciples of Christ. We know that a disciple is a follower, yet it so much more than that. A disciple is a person who learns… learns from another and then is sent forth to teach others. This is the great commission and how the good news of Christ is shared!
Families have a very important role in this commission as they live out discipleship within their homes, growing in faith together. Our faith formation and youth ministry sessions support families in living out their “yes” to discipleship by accompanying them in lifelong faith formation. We hope to encourage growth in their knowledge of Christ and in their relationship with Him and others.
FF & YM Sessions meet from October 3, 2021-May 22, 2022 from 11:15am-12:30pm in the Parish Center.
Calendar of specific meeting dates will be posted soon.

Confirmation Preparation for Middle School & High School
Last year completed a 3 year transition to the Restored Order of the Sacraments in the Diocese of Manchester. At this time, the norm grade to receive Confirmation is grade 3. In order to serve our families who have a child in middle school or high school that were not able to participate in preparation before this year, we will be offering preparation in a hybrid of online preparation and in-person gatherings. Calendar of meeting dates to be determined. Participation in LIFT (Middle School) and SOAR (High School) Youth Ministry gatherings encouraged.
