Three goals of youth ministry (from Renewing the Vision: A Catholic Framework for Youth Ministry):
- Empowering young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today
- Drawing young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith community
- Fostering the personal and spiritual growth of each young person
Youth Ministry Levels 7-9th we use Gospel Weekly material from Pflaum, 10-11th we use Dynamic Catholic's Decision Point
Levels 7 and 8 & Levels 9 and 10 are strongly encouraged to take advantage of service opportunities. In their sessions on Sunday evening, lectionary based material is used.
All grade Level’s material will need to be made up if a session is missed. So to keep our children and youth connect with Our Lord.
Level 11 is a sacramental year. See sacramental section for Confirmation.
Level 12 young people are expected to begin living as adult members of our parish by utilizing their gifts and talents within the parish if they have not already begun to do so. While there are no formal Faith Formation sessions for this level, they are encouraged to attend and participate in the Youth Ministry events at the parish and diocesan level that are open to them.
