Middle School Faith Formation


Middle School Faith Formation

About this Ministry...

At Epiphany, we strive to empower our 6th-8th graders to seek lasting, personal relationships with Jesus Christ. We know that in the day-to-day busyness, the best thing we can offer families and teens is the peace of  Christ. We seek to empower our middle schoolers to seek a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith and to foster a community of Truth and Life. Our Middle School Faith Formation Ministry is structured with this in mind.

We need YOUR help! To get involved in this ministry, contact Carly Radke, 763.862.4334 or cradke@epiphanymn.org.

How can adults get involved?

Parent and adult involvement is essential to our program. Teens care about what you care about. Not only do we appreciate your support from the home, but also as catechists (small group leaders), substitute catechists, hall monitors, and prayerful support. Thank you for investing in your child’s faith and the life of this parish. Click here to find out more about volunteering at Epiphany.

What other opportunities do you offer?

6th grade

6th graders spend the year learning about God’s plan for humanity. Teens will be drawn into the adventure of the Bible and challenged to unpack the Word of God. They will be given the tools needed to discover the meaning and rich tradition of our faith and the purpose God has for each of them. Each teen will receive a Bible, Bible tabs, and a Bible TimelineThe goal of this study is to meet the person of Christ through a deeper understanding of the story of our salvation throughout the Old and New Testaments.

7th and 8th grade

The 7th and 8th graders receive a two-year rotating curriculum on the four pillars of the Catechism: the Profession of Faith (Creed), Sacramental Life, Morality, and Prayer. This curriculum is based entirely off of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and will be accompanied by engaging talks and videos. 7th and 8th graders will be placed in discipleship groups to build community, accountability, and encourage spiritual and personal growth. All 7th & 8th graders are strongly encouraged to attend our Winter retreat, Extreme Faith Weekend.
