Kids in Church


Youth Discipleship Formation

​On Wednesday evenings when family formation nights are not being held, Holy Cross Pastorate Youth Group will be offered for all teens in grades 6-12 from 7pm to 8:30pm at St. Francis Xavier. There will be different programming for middle school students (grades 6-8) and high school students (grades 9-12).

Our goal for each group is to help teens develop lasting, life-giving Christian friendships with their peers and grow in their relationship with Jesus. We strive to cultivate a community that is rooted in the Catholic Faith, where your teen will be equipped to flourish as a human being and as a disciple of Christ. It is a great supplement to family faith formation, as it gives your kids the opportunity to socialize with likeminded people who are their age, and experience the faith in a fun and vibrant community.

Youth Group is completely optional, but highly recommended for all middle school and high school youth. We recommend registering your teen so that we can ensure you are a part of the email communications (via Flocknote), even if your child cannot attend every single week. Fill out the form below to register!

There is no set fee to participate in Youth Group, however, to help cover the cost of food, technology, materials, etc., a donation amount of $50 to $100 per teen would be greatly appreciated.
