Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
The Faith Formation Program at St. Gabriel's for our Youth in 6th-10th grades includes: 6th through 8th grade participating in the EDGE program, 9th Graders participating in Life Teen Night and the 10th graders participating in Confirmation Preparation at St. Gabriel's.
These programs for the higher grades are nontraditional, with goals of presenting Catholic teaching in ways that youth can understand, and building community among the young people. For home schooling parents of students in Grades 6 through 9, helpful resources are available in our office.
Students in grades 6-10 are welcome to join our Youth Group!
