Dear Parents of Jr. High Students and Jr. High Students,
My name is Chrissie Cola, I am the Junior High Faith Formation Coordinator for St. Rita. I would like to welcome you to our Jr. High Youth Ministry and Faith Formation Program. We have a great year planned for all the Jr. High students! I am excited and blessed to get to know all of you and your families.
The purpose of this program is to create a setting where Catholic Junior High Teens will come together to learn more about our wonderful Catholic faith, grow closer to our Lord, serve others, make great friends, and have fun!
This year we will meet on Sunday and Tuesday evenings for our PSR/Faith Formation program. While all Jr. High youth are invited to participate, for those not enrolled in the day school this will serve as their PSR requirement for Confirmation and CYO requirements.
Please register for one of the two dates at http://www.stritaparish.com/religious-education/parish-school-of-religion.html.
We invite you to join us Sunday or Tuesday evening (we will be covering the same topics both evenings) for a fun time learning about our faith. The exact dates are posted on the attached calendar. Sunday evenings will take place at Mazenac Hall, and Tuesday evenings will be at the SPACE. We will have opportunities for Youth Ministry, which will continue to grow out of our Faith Formation Program. There is a either fun or ministry activity every month, so please watch your emails for details!
There will be many opportunities for your teens to be involved in service and social programs, as well as faith building experiences. I truly believe in incorporating our faith into every aspect of our lives. We encourage all Junior High Teens of the parish, whether they attend the day school or public school, to participate in our Youth Ministry Activities.
