* REMINDER FOR INCOMING 8th GRADE PARENTS: *
If you intend for your son or daughter to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation in 9th grade, enrollment in 8th grade faith formation is required.
Classes meet Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:15 pm in the Middle School Building on the St. Mary Magdalen Mission Campus September through April.
This program allows the youth to meet in small grade appropriate groups with catechists and the coordinator to explore the four pillars of the Catholic faith. We do this through prayer, catechism, scripture, activities, service projects, and large group gatherings with parents.
The program provides parents with materials and support to home school their youth through the four pillars of our Catholic faith. Large group gatherings with both parents and their youth take place six times during the school year on Wednesday evenings. This provides opportunities for parents and teen to grow together in their faith.
Chapter quizzes and attendance are the primary ways we assess successful participation in this program.

Confirmed teens are invited to be a part of our team of peer ministers who accompany other youth on their journey of faith. Our peer ministers are an integral part of our Confirmation program.
Invitations are extended to select youth to participate in local and national leadership opportunities such as the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s High School Leadership Institute (High LI) and One Bread One Cup in St. Meinrad, IN.

This group is comprised of young adults, who seek to grow closer to Christ in the Eucharist and their peers through time in prayer, in penance and in the pub. Adults between the ages of 21 and 35 gather twice a month in the chapel for Adoration (P1 – prayer). During this time, the Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered (P2 – penance). After Benediction, fellowship ensues at a local restaurant (P3 – pub). For more information, please contact the Parish Office.
