Middle School Grades 7-8

The St. Mary by the Lake Faith Formation program provides an opportunity for Middle and High School students in grades 7th through 10th to grow in faith by developing a meaningful relationship with Jesus, a better understanding of our Catholic tradition and help to plant roots for the adult years. This program includes instruction, fellowship, prayer, service, and fun. The Youth Ministry program also provides opportunities for youth to engage in service, social and retreat opportunities throughout the year.

7th & 8th Grade Curriculum:

  • Fall 2021 Altaration: Altaration addresses head-on one of the biggest problems we all face: how do we get Catholic teens to appreciate the awesome beauty and mystery of the Mass…and to actually look forward to attending and participating?
  • Spring 2022 Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation: We live in a broken and hurting world. Teens today see division, anxiety, and tension all around them. Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation brings Christ’s healing message to a world that sorely needs it through the topics that are most important to teens right now.
