So What Happens After Confirmation? The Rest of Your Life!

We have mentors eager to share our new Discipleship Roadmaps with you.
These tools reflect the variety of (1) paths and (2) skills that we all need to explore and develop to get
from here (wherever that is for you) to there (intimate friendship with Jesus).
Using Scripture, the YOUCAT, discussion, videos, saints & devotions, the game is to see how much of your individual Roadmap you can investigate and experience on this year of self-paced discovery.

  Jr. High and High School students:

     join us Sep 25 at 9:45am to meet your mentors and get started!




Our Approach
 

What: Faith formation at St. Thomas Aquinas parish offers opportunities for youth to complement what they are learning about the Catholic Faith from their parents who are the primary educators of their children. The lessons offered through the parish Sunday School supplement the family's ongoing efforts to introduce the children to the Good News of what God has done for them in Jesus Christ and how they are called to be formed as his disciples, eventually to be sent as missionaries to share this message with others.

These are some of the core habits for disciples of all ages to develop. They serve as the focus of our efforts at coaching our young parishioners to grow as disciples of Jesus. Notice how the first four are habits primarily developed at home, in the Domestic Church. The final habit is what we can focus on during our parish faith formation sessions in an effort to help develop some vocabulary and concepts to better understand and articulate the relationship with Jesus at the root of the first four habits:

  • Prayer:  develop the habit of daily personal and family conversation with God.
  • Mass:  develop the habit of actively participating in weekly Sunday Mass.
  • Bible:  develop the habit of reading (or listening to) Sacred Scripture.
  • Love:  develop the habit of being generous in our love for God and neighbor.
  • Study:  develop the habit of learning more about what God has done for us and how we
                 are called to respond.
