Religious Education Jr. High

Junior High Classes are taught on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm or students have the option of registering for a combination home and group study program called FACS (Family And Classroom Study). This program includes weekly emailed assignments combined with periodic classroom meetings on Sundays during the school year.

Confirmation Candidates are required to attend the 7th Grade year of instruction before being admitted into the Eighth Grade Confirmation Class. There are three meetings and a retreat which are part of the Candidate's preparation for Confirmation, as well. The Acts of Love Project helps Candidates develop an understanding of the life of service to which all are called as fully-initiated followers of Christ.

All Junior High students also have a commitment to assist the poor and the parish community through the same donations and collections as the younger students. Junior High students are encouraged to take leadership roles for these collections, in prayer and in activities for all of the students.
