Middle School Life

Middle school youth are a special group of young people who are open to God’s call to follow in his footsteps. St. Mary’s Faith Formation works to open the eyes and ears of middle school youth by adding a service component to the Faith Formation curriculum. Middle school youth spend one or two sessions working with the elderly in a local long-term care facility or assisting the elderly with yard clean-up.

Middle schoolers are also very social, so St. Mary’s provides many opportunities for the youth to gather with friends and fellow Christians in safe and fun environments.
