Faith Formation – Middle School
Religious Education Classes
Youth Faith Formation is for students in 6th to 8th grade. Classes meet for six weeks in the fall and six weeks in the spring. Classes are held on Sunday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Monsignor Slade School. In addition, middle school youth are required to attend two of five Middle School Service Projects. They are also required to attend their grade level retreat.
Middle School Service Projects:
The Winter Shelter
Our middle school youth will gather, prepare and serve dinner to our Winter Shelter guests. After dinner, the students will visit, play board games and share our talents.
Jean/Winter Coat Drive
A representative from HOPE will join us to discuss his organization and poverty in Anne Arundel County. HOPE For All is a Christian ministry whose mission is to provide basic human necessities (i.e. furniture, housewares, clothing and personal items) to families and individuals without sufficient economic resources. They serve in Anne Arundel County, parts of Baltimore City and the Appalachian region.
HOPE is committed to accomplishing its mission primarily by engaging compassionate volunteers of all ages, from all walks of life, in meaningful and productive Christian service. It seeks not to compete with but to support and work with other groups/churches/agencies especially those embracing similar Christian values.
After the presentation, we will then sort and pack up our donated jeans to deliver to HOPE for distribution.
