Jr. High Youth Group

Middle School (Junior High) Youth Group: The model for middle school catechesis for youth in grades 6-8 at Peace of Christ Parish is the youth group. Besides faith formation, Youth Groups integrate all of the 8 components of a comprehensive youth ministry as outlined in the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: Renewing the Vision, plan for youth ministry including: advocacy, catechesis, community life, evangelization, justice and service, leadership development, pastoral care and prayer/worship.  

The program for youth utilizes two primary texts: The Catholic Connections Handbook for Middle Schoolers, Second Edition and the Catholic Youth Bible, both by St. Mary’s Press. The themes explored during these three formative years are the Old Testament, the New Testament and Church History/the Holy Spirit. The middle school youth group years provide youth with a strong faith foundation for their preparation of the Sacrament of Confirmation that begins in grade 8. For more information on the Sacrament of Confirmation, visit our Confirmation page under "Sacraments."

We meet Sunday mornings, 11am-Noon at St. Ambrose Academy. First youth group begins with a parent/youth informational meeting Sunday, September 15th, 11am-Noon, Dailey Hall @ St. Ambrose Academy. Registration materials are found at all worship sites and the parish office.
