HIGH SCHOOL MINISTRY at Resurrection Catholic Parish
Teens are welcome to join us throughout the year! Our goal is to lead teens closer to Christ.
Our 4-Year High School Ministry, called “LIFE TEEN,” is an ongoing discipleship process through relational ministry. We are helping each other be committed to Christ and His Church. We walk the road of being a Christian teen in today’s world. We do this by learning about Jesus and the Apostles and the Saints of our Faith (using our heads and our hearts) reading Scripture together, and applying it to our lives, having great small group discussions, deepening friendships, serving the Community (both in our Local Parish and the greater Community), going on retreats and mission trips, and linking arms on our journey of faith.
The ministry has an ongoing FOUR YEAR approach. It is easy and comfortable for a teen to join us at any point in High School.
*Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation of the 2021-2020 school year has been postponed. Please read the Confirmation information if you are interested for the following year.
Confirmation Prep takes place alongside our Four Year Ministry, “LIFE TEEN.” Confirmation Prep focuses more on what the Catholic Church Teaches, and “Why We Do, What We Do.” For a teen to be well-formed to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation they need to learn what we cover in “Confirmation Prep,” but even more importantly they need to experience the ongoing discipleship of LIFE TEEN all these opportunities for conversion of heart.
The recommended course would be for a High School Teen to be involved in LIFE TEEN all four years, and then during sophomore, junior or senior year, participate in the Prep Sessions, and then continue with their High School discipleship Journey in LIFE TEEN.
Along with these opportunities for our teens, are the Parent Sessions for our adults. During the Confirmation Prep years, there are important Faith Formation Sessions offered for the parents, and the parents are expected to participate. The content of these sessions is designed to help aid the Continual Conversion process for our adults!
Each year of High School, the cost to register for our LIFE TEEN ministry is the same. There is no additional registration fee for Confirmation. Confirmation families will be asked to buy a workbook and DVD for $25 that we will be using this year at home and in our sessions.
*UPDATE FOR CONFIRMATION 2020-2021
We have come to the decision to put our Confirmation Prep process on hold until Fall of 2021. There are several factors that play into this, but all have to do with our COVID Pandemic and the challenges it brings.
Our four year, on-going LIFE TEEN ministry is where you should land. As mentioned above, the journey toward Confirmation begins in forming deeper relationships in our Church Family. We can’t wait to begin another LIFE TEEN year, growing closer to God and to one another.
