What We Are All About
Our High School Life program is for teenagers in 9th through 12th grades. Classes meet on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:45 AM. The classes follow the curriculum established by the Archdiocese of Mobile and attempt to respond to the faith and developmental needs of our youth, reaching them on four levels: spiritual, emotional, educational, and social.
The four year course of studies is from the Didache Series by Midwest Theological Forum, which includes Old and New Testaments, Church History, Social Justice, Creed, Church Doctrine, Sacraments, and Prayer. Students will discover and delve into their faith, learning more about the mystery and history of the Church. They will learn about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ Our Savior.
Mission: To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today and to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
Meetings: 1st- 3rd Wednesday Nights of every month- 6:30-8:00 PM
