High School Program Overview & Offerings
The High School Confirmation & Youth Ministry program consists of a focused 2-year Confirmation prep track, in addition to several optional activities and programs for those who want to get more deeply involved either before or after receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.
It is worth noting, we see our programs as a supplement and NOT a replacement or substitute to regularly attending worship together as a family at the Mass of your choice.
By attending Mass at St. Thomas you will…
- Participate in the central act of praise & worship of the Catholic Church.
- Gather in a welcoming community of God’s people.
- Have the opportunity to reflect on areas of your life where there’s hurt, doubt, & sin.
- Hear God’s Word proclaimed through the Scripture readings.
- Hear a homily intended to leave you with a better understanding of Scripture and it’s application to your daily life.
- Share in prayer for your needs and the needs of the Church community.
- Connect with the real and sacred presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.
- Connect with the Body of Christ in each and every other person gathered in the congregation and the universal Church around the world
- Be sent forth empowered to live more fully as disciples of Jesus in our world.
The Mass is the foundational element from which and to which every other part of living life in the Catholic faith flows.
