This year, we are offering one additional session for our Middle and High Schoolers. We will still be offering our standard Sunday morning classes, but will also offer alternative retreat days for students to participate in.
HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM 9TH & 10TH GRADE
Sundays, 9:15-10:15 AM
In this Sunday program, high schoolers attend Sunday sessions where they are encouraged to ask questions, grow in their Catholic faith, and nurture Catholic friendships with other students. Through various presentations, group discussion, and fun, high schoolers are equipped to become lifelong disciples of Christ.
High School Retreat Day, 5:30 PM Friday – 4:30 PM Saturday (Select Date each Semester)
Each semester parents have the option to enroll their child in a one-night retreat, beginning at 5:30pm on a Friday and ending after the 4:30pm Mass on Saturday. This retreat will focus on speakers, breakout discussions, activity-based learning, and more. Sessions will conclude with Saturday evening mass. Please see our schedule above for more details regarding dates.
MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM 6TH-8TH GRADE

Each semester parents have the option to enroll their child in a class held once a month on select Sundays from Noon-4pm.
