Middle School & High School Programs
Our youth program provides a safe, fun place for our teens to find Catholic community, find answer to difficult questions and, most importantly, experience Jesus in a relational way. Our 6th and 7th grade students study the teachings of the church through catechism students and morality. Our 8th grade students begin their first year of Confirmation preparation through a two part study: one semester of Biblical studies and the second semester studying the mass. Our 9th grade students begin the first half of Acension’s Confirmation program while our 10th grade students complete the second part of Chosen during their final year of preparation for Confirmation.
Per the Archdiocese of Atlanta, the earliest a child can receive his Confirmation is in his 10th grade year. This preparation process is a three year program in order to adequately prepare in foundational studies of the Bible and Holy Mass followed by an extensive study on the Sacrament of Confirmation.
It is our goal that our Eucharist-centered program will strengthens our teen’s Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and His Church.
After Confirmation reception, we encourage the teens to return for additional studies on Catholic morality and discipleship as well as attending our parish youth group.
