The St. Francis de Sales Middle School Religious Education Program, Catholic Connections, is open to all youth in grades 6-8. Classes meet twice monthly.
Middle school may be one of the last great opportunities we, as Catechists, have to positively impact and assist children in their educational, spiritual, emotional and social development. Middle school adolescents are discovering who they are and what they believe. Those who minister to middle school youth are working with youth who have many significant decisions ahead of them. The ministering adult has the opportunity to plant the seeds of Jesus' love, hope and peace in the middle school child.
Each student enrolled in the St. Francis de Sales Middle School Religious Education Program is required to participate in at least 4 special prayer experiences during the year. They are also required to perform 12 hours of service.
At the end of the year, middle school students are also asked to submit a Service and Prayer Experience Reflection along with their Service and Prayer Log.
