Religious Education for high school students is primarily focused on Confirmation preparation which traditionally takes place at the end of the student's sophomore year. High school students are provided ample time to develop and deepen their prayer life, learn the truths of the Catholic faith and listen and learn from their peers through thoughtful discussion.
In addition to their weekly lessons, students are expected to spend at least 10 hours volunteering their service at Mass or parish events throughout the year. They are also to attend at least 10 Youth Ministry Events each year. These events are held regularly. Dates, times and locations of events are posted on the website calendar, on bulletin boards found at each church and in the parish bulletin.
Occasionally Religious Education will be cancelled due to weather. Every effort will be made to notify students and parents as soon as possible via text message and/or email.
The time and location for our high school Religious Education classes:
Sunday evenings 5:00-6:30 pm in the St. Joseph Church basement in Boyd.
Youth Ministry Event: Dead Theologians Society (DTS) will meet on most Sundays following Religious Education at St. Joseph Church. For those who are able to stay for DTS, dinner will be provided at 6:30 pm with the lesson to follow 7:00-7:45 pm.
