Sr. High Youth Group

Senior High Youth Group: The model for high school catechesis for youth in grades 9-12 at Peace of Christ Parish is the youth group. Besides faith formation, youth groups integrate the ideals of the USCCB’s Renewing the Vision and is supported by two primary texts; The Catholic Faith Handbook for Teens and the Breakthrough Bible, both by St. Mary’s Press.  Additionally, youth explore the YOUCAT to find answers to their questions about their lives and our faith.  The focus during these four years is on the New Testament; specifically, on putting our faith into action through discipleship/Catholic Social Teachings.
