High School

Grades 9-12

All high school students are invited to participate in this vibrant community! Our mission is to open the hearts of the youth to experience the love of Jesus Christ. Through the rich principles of the Catholic faith, teens are encouraged to strengthen their personal relationships with the Lord and to deepen that relationship through Catholic practices.

A typical gathering includes dinner and fellowship followed by a talk and small group discussions. We also have off campus retreats, Eucharistic Adoration and Reconciliation several times throughout the year. Teens are welcome to join any time and no registration is required. 


High School Teens preparing for Confirmation do so under the guidance of our Youth Formation Director.  This is a two-year program that meets monthly during the school year.  

2022-2023 Confirmation Class Updates

“Because we live in a busy parish, things may sometimes need to move around! Confirmation Teens should check back on the schedule regularly to ensure they haven’t missed an update on class days, meeting locations, or due dates.” 

*Middle School and High School Teens who did not complete their catechism through regular Religious Education classes may do so through our teen initiation class (RCIA for Teens)
