Ascent is our Junior High Youth Ministry, in which youth in Grades 7 & 8 can particiapte in formation, fellowship, and fun!
Once a child reaches middle school, Faith Formation takes on a different shape. "Ascent" allows 7th and 8th graders a taste of what youth ministry looks like, while still providing necessary Faith learning experiences.
Our "Ascent" group uses YDisciple, a program released by the Augustine Institute. Focusing more on how Christ and the Church relate to their lives, students are geared to have a personal relationship with Jesus, live their faith in the world through service, and grow stronger bonds with each other through fun group activities and special events.
Our middle school group also helps to plan, organize, and run parish family events. They get to take on some leadership roles and ownership of parish activities, mentoring younger students in the process.
