Middle School Faith Formation
Welcome to Middle School! This is a fun time to get to know your peers by participating in socials, outings and service opportunities with your peers. These optional events are open to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade youth of the parish. Permission slips can be found on our Middle School Calendar page. Please sign up by the posted deadlines to reserve your spot.
6th Grade PSR Options
During 6th Grade, youth may register for Integrated PSR or Growing in Faith Together (GIFT) Please visit the Elementary Faith Formation page for details.
7th & 8th Grade PSR Options
Confirmation preparation takes place during 7th and 8th Grade. Candidates who missed previous sacraments may need additional prepration. Visit the Confirmation page for more information. There are two PSR options for 7th and 8th Grade youth: Middle School EDGE offers a youth ministry format geared to the younger adolescent, utilizing materials by Lifeteen's EDGE program; Growing in Faith Together (GIFT) is a family-based catechesis for children ages Kindergarten through 8th Grade. Both programs seek to nourish the spiritual development of youth through faith learning and liturgical experiences, to foster a commitment to others through service opportunities, and to develop a sense of parish community by providing optional social events for our middle school youth.
- Please register for the program and session time that your child can attend regularly and does not conflict with their extracurricular activities. If your child plans to participate in Cotillion (aka Promenade), please choose the morning EDGE session or GIFT program.
- All 7th & 8th graders must attend either EDGE, GIFT, or an approved Archdiocesan Catholic school to be on track to celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation in the 10th grade. Attendance of at least 80% of their sessions is needed to meet the Confirmation preparation requirement for 7th and 8th Grade.
