Year One of the Journey to Confirmation

Two choices this year!

Journey One students have the opportunity to attend our exciting Edge gatherings!   Edge gatherings will occur twice a month at Taylor Lodge after the 5:00 pm Sunday Mass and end at 7:30 pm.  Edge gatherings include large-group components, such as speakers, music, testimonies, and games, as well as opportunities to break out into small groups for more intimate discussions led by Edge leaders.  They will also include dinner and fellowship!

Journey One students who prefer a weeknight meeting in a classroom setting may choose to attend class on Mondays twice a month from 6:00 pm until 7:15 pm. These classes will follow the same schedule as Edge Nights. The classes will use the award-winning Chosen curriculum from Ascension Press. Chosen offers a powerful approach to teen faith formation that will both catechize and challenge teens to fully embrace a life in Christ.

Sixteen sessions will be offered this year. Because attendance is extremely important during Sacramental Preparation years students are expected to attend all 16 sessions. We will allow up to 3 absences for illness.

It’s a boy! Edge students celebrated the birth of Jesus by attending a baby shower for Mary fit for a king. Teens brought baby gifts which were donated to a local women’s pregnancy aid clinic and played traditional baby shower games.

Ever want to build a time machine and zap back to a moment in the past? That is exactly what our Edge middle schoolers did. Teams built transporters from throw-away items and boxes, then explored our Catholic past and discovered the history of Mass through the introduction of a Seder meal.
