Building Relationships & Leading Youth and Families to Christ

Friends of Francis (Grades 4-5)

Participants will get the chance to learn more about our Franciscan spirituality while continuing to learn how to live out their faith in their lives. We will do this using age-appropriate exploration of what it means to be Catholic, games, crafts, community building and light-hearted discussion. Youth will enjoy no longer being in a classroom setting but instead will be introduced to sessions that have a more “youth ministry” feel to them. This program includes retreats and camp opportunities.*

Middle School Edge (Grades 6-8)

As a continuation of their general faith formation, youth get the opportunity for age appropriate learning, community building, games, and activities. We strive to let every participant know they are important and valuable members of our community. We provide a safe space for sharing and opportunities for growth in developing each person’s spiritual identity. The program includes retreats and camp opportunities.*

High School Life Teen (Grades 9-12)

We share stories as we build relationships between families. We strive to live out the maxim “all are welcome” in a very real way.

Teens are encouraged to learn about and grow in their faith as we explore what it means to be Catholic through the lens of Franciscan spirituality.  Community building and learning inspires us to answer our call to go out and share the good news. We strive to serve our neighbors and the surrounding community in a variety of ways with hearts full of love and compassion.

The program includes retreats and camp opportunities.*

We also have an early faith formation programs for youth grades Pre-K – 3!  Visit our Family Catechesis page to learn more!
