MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY

Middle School (grades 6-8) is a formative and challenging time in the life of a young person. The EDGE program helps teens navigate these waters in an environment that combines traditional classroom catechesis and youth ministry principles in a dynamic and community-building package. This year, in response to Covid-19, teens will be placed in virtual small classroom groups according to gender and grade level. All classes will take place on the Zoom platform and can be accessed by visiting: svdpaustinyouth.com/liveedge

Below is an example of what you might experience at a virtual meeting on a Wednesday evening at EDGE.

Actual times and activities will vary:

6 pm - Gather: Virtual Icebreaker & opening prayer

6:15 pm - Proclaim: Large group virtual testimony/summary of the day's lesson

6:30 pm - Break: Small group virtual catechesis with a Core Team leader

6:55 pm - Send: Virtual "Go forth" message and group prayer

HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY

High School presents each young person with unique challenges and incredibly fun experiences. The IMPACT program strives to meet the varied spiritual and social needs of each teen in a way that resonates with them as individuals.

All classes will be available on the Zoom platform and can be accessed by visiting: svdpaustinyouth.com/liveimpact

CONFIRMATION 2021

COME HOLY SPIRIT!

“Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiations, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds.” CCC 1316

Confirmation 2021 information will be available in November 2020
