What do middle schoolers experience?

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 Timeline. The 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.

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. They will also attend a day-long Middle School Retreat with games, praise and worship, engaging talks, Eucharistic Adoration, and more.

How can adults 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.
