 Edge & Life | Middle & High School Youth Ministry


Edge: Encounter God in the Everyday
Our yearly catechetical sessions for middle school youth will begin Sunday, September 27 with a fun meet and greet, and introduction to our year in the virtual world using Zoom. Our topic for the 2020-21 school year will be the seven sacraments (baptism, reconciliation, Eucharist, confirmation, anointing of the sick, matrimony and holy orders). All young people in sixth through eighth grade are encouraged to join us from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., October 4, November 1 and December 6. These virtual nights will include icebreakers, a proclaim (talk), small group discussions, prayer and teen testimonies. There is no fee to register for youth ministry, but we do ask that participants complete a registration form and sign up for Remind updates at www.remind.com/join - Enter Class Code stbarbym

Life: Inflame Your Heart Our yearly catechetical sessions for high school youth (grades nine through twelve) will begin Sunday, October 11 with a virtual night over Zoom. For those teens attending high school in the fall, our Life Nights will also meet virtually November 8 and December 13 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Our yearly path for high school will traverse down different subject avenues. If you have ever wondered what the church teaches about same-sex marriage; transgender; racism or why we pray to Mary and the saints, then we highly encourage you to join in on these nights with us and your Life Night adult leaders as they unpack these and more hot button topics. Our nights together will also include small group discussions, prayer and games to lighten the mood. There is no fee to register for youth ministry, but we do ask that participants complete a registration form and sign up for Remind updates at www.remind.com/join - Enter Class Code stbarbym
