Middle School Faith Formation


Middle School Faith Formation

``Jesus is calling you to be a disciple with a mission! ...What is the Lord saying to us? Three simple ideas: Go, do not be afraid, and serve.`` ~Pope Francis I, World Youth Day 2013 homily ~

Our Mission

Middle School Faith Formation seeks to integrate the whole person in the life of faith: intellectually, spiritually, humanly, and pastorally. Our catechesis is presented through large group speakers, small discussion groups, times of prayer, and various activities/games/social elements. Teens who participate in the Middle School Faith Formation program are well-prepared for the high school Confirmation program because the three Middle School Faith Formation years build each year for Confirmation and beyond. The ultimate goal of our catechesis is love of God through knowledge of God, lived out in daily life.

The 6th grade receives an in-depth year long Bible Study, complete with their own Bible, tabs, Bible Timeline, and bookmark. 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 based 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.

A day-long Middle School Retreat with games, praise and worship, talks, Eucharistic Adoration, and more. Teens are also encouraged to attend our E3 MS Nights for Middle School. Various other youth ministry events will be offered throughout the year, including Winterblast, the all-night lock-in, seasonal events, and summer programming.

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, substitute catechists, hall monitors, and prayer 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.
