High School Formation


At St. Jude Catholic Church, we combined Catechesis with Sacramental Preparation! We utilize the “Life Teen” and “Edge” Curriculum so we can give the TEENS a Holistic Experience!  High School (Grade 9-12) uses the Life Teen Curriculum. Jr. High (Grade 6-8) utilizes Edge Curriculum. We have classes for the Parents of our students so they too can get closer to Christ! Students join weekly in fellowship with their PEERS as they learn the Catholic Faith. Our catechesis aims to put the teens in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ so he can lead them to the love of His Father through the Holy Spirit so they may learn to share in the life of the Holy Trinity.

Confirmation is a two-year preparation program click here.
Registration for Confirmation Sessions is at the same time as Religious Education registration.

In our Faith Formation Sessions, the Core team focuses on arousing initial faith and sustaining the gradual conversion with the teachings of the Catholic Church through the use of the Holy Bible and the Catechism. The teen acquires a Christian Community with their peers through the means of the study of the Sacraments.
Teens are called together and called to faith. Students participate in the liturgy at Sunday Mass as a witness of discipleship. They receive the sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation together as a group. Students participate in Adoration, pray the Rosary, and pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet with their peers.
After Confirmation, the teens may register to be part of a discipleship group called PEER Ministers. Peer Ministers continue to journey through their faith through study, service, teaching, and fellowship.
The PEER session is for the Confirmed Student, having accepted by faith the person of Jesus Christ as the on Lord and demonstrate a sincere conversion of heart, endeavors to know better this Jesus. Peer Ministers.
