• MSYM - Middle School Youth Ministry (Grades 5-8)

    St. Matthias’ & St. Charles’ Middle School Youth Group is designed for fifth through eighth graders as a forum for exploration and discovery about how God has revealed himself in the world and how youth can become more aware of God’s presence in their lives. Over the scheduled sessions, participants will learn about God, Revelation and Faith, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit and the Church, Liturgy and Sacraments, Christian Morality and Justice, and Prayer. Lives of the Saints will be explored and all faith topics will be connected to lived experiences. 

    We will be using a St. Mary’s Press publication called, Connect! Bringing Faith to Life.  A copy will be provided for each participant. 

    When: Meetings will be held on Wednesdays, 5:00-6:00 PM 

    Where:  Most class meetings will be held in Borromeo Hall at St. Charles. Service projects and special events will be held in Fr. Lacey Hall at St. Matthias. 

    What we do: We combine prayer, structured learning, fun & games, and service projects in faith formation.
