Youth and Teen Faith Formation
Middle School/EDGE Youth Group
for 6th, 7th and 8th Graders
For all pre-teens and teens in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades, Catholic religious education is a requirement as it is the pathway to the Sacrament of Confirmation. Our EDGE Middle School Ministry provides a safe, fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way.
8th grade students that have been in Faith Formation for their K-7 classes will also be completing their Sacrament of Confirmation preparation during their 8th grade year. We use the program Chosen by Ascension Press and present this material through 4 half-day retreats later in the school year.
To begin registration for our Middle School program – please download the Youth Ministry registration packet and complete all the requested information. For next steps, reach out to our Youth Minister, Denys Davis at 336-515-3379, ext. 10 or email@example.com.
High School Youth Group
for 9th – 12th Grade Students
Our Youth Group program is open to all teens in 9th-12th grade who have completed their Rites of Initiation with the Catholic Church (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation). Using the Life Teen program, we lead teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. Our program offers year-round weekly meetings; service opportunities at both, Holy Cross Church and in our local community; Catholic retreats; and summer camp!

Sacraments for Teens:
Catholic Foundations Program
If your teen needs any of the Catholic Rites of Initiation – Baptism, First Communion, or Confirmation – and has not attended a yearly Faith Formation program, our Catholic Foundations classes have been created just for them! In this program, we work with all teens to learn their Catholic faith at a pace that suits them while moving forward to the Sacraments. Our program uses the YOUCAT materials for weekly group discussions.
