The “E” of the Youth Ministry name refers primarily to
our parish, the Church of the Epiphany, the history and identity of which forms
us in community and continuously draws us deeper into the Universal
Church. The number “3” refers to the
three signs of the Epiphany: visit of the Magi, the Baptism of the Lord, and
the Wedding Feast at Cana.
Is this Confirmation?
No, Confirmation preparation occurs on Sunday evenings and more information can be found on the Confirmation page. E3 HS is for all teens in high school regardless of whether or not they are in Confirmation. Confirmation heavily emphasizes discipleship in a manner that seeks give teens the tools to live out, cherish, and defend their Catholic faith as they prepare for and then receive the graces of the Sacrament. While E3 HS seeks a similar goal of discipleship, the emphasis is more toward sustaining, building, and reinforcing the solid foundation from middle school faith formation and youth ministry and Confirmation. It is the desire of the parish for young people to attend E3 HS nights throughout all of high school.
Can we bring friends?
Absolutely! We would love for you to bring friends to all E3 HS nights and events.
How can adults get involved?
