SPARKS

SPARKS Middle School Youth Ministry is a two year required formation program for 7th-8th grade youth designed helping prepare students to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.  The youth will learn about the extraordinary gift this Sacrament is, and appreciate what the Holy Spirit’s presence in their life can mean to them.   Also, in recognizing the critical issues that many middle school age youth are facing, Sparks seeks to combine a balance of catechesis, evangelization and service, with the small group experience to engage the youth in dealing with those issues, while at the same time learning the teachings of the Catholic Church on today’s social issues.
