Middle School “707” (7th & 8th Grade)
Middle schoolers are in a time of significant social and emotional growth. They are in transitional years where they crave freedom and need to develop interpersonal relationships with other kids their age and adults who are not their parents. We have an opportunity to help them navigate this challenging time while they grow in their faith and connectivity to their parish community.
“707 Sundays” – **Sundays – 10:30-11:45am, Youth Room (behind the church)
“707 Social Nights” – Wednesdays twice/month 7:07-8:30pm (Parish Center)
- “707 Sundays” provides 7th & 8th graders ongoing faith formation. Students will “tackle” topics relatable to Middle School ages that invite students to gain essential social and emotional skills and deepen their awareness of themselves as they mature in their Catholic faith.
- **Participation in the “707 Sundays” provides the “Year 1” foundation for those 8th graders wishing to continue preparation for Confirmation in High School.
