Over the course of four years, your high school teen will not only receive quality catechesis but will also connect to the larger teen community of St. Laurence as well as the parish as a whole. There are several different programs as listed below for your high school youth here at St. Laurence:
Our 4 year comprehensive high school catechesis is both intentional and systematic. We use the United States Bishops suggested curriculum to address current needs and situations relevant to youth culture through various miniseries each semester of dynamically orthodox teachings to better understand Roman Catholicism.
Below is the basic outline of our four year, comprehensive program:
A high school home study program is also available for those families who prefer to teach the faith at home.
Tuesdays 6:00-7:30pm in the Youth Room
"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers," Acts 2:42. "Dgroups" are small, grade specific community faith groups. Come join us for free food, community and faith sharing. These groups focus on relevant, challenging faith questions and help teens understand their Catholic faith. They run on bible studies which works hand-in-hand with our other youth ministry programs. Basically, these groups are focused on relationships; relationships with each other and with God. Discipleship Groups meet on Tuesdays from 6:00-7:30pm in the youth room.
The 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 8:00-9:15pm
These nights are directed strictly for our Seniors. Senior Core is a blend of catechesis, leadership development and service. Peer leadership is an important aspect of youth ministry and this group is dedicated to assisting our young people in taking that next big step in their faith lives.
