Why am I here? What is my purpose? What path should I take?

Like Chris says in the video above, these are questions that every person asks. These questions typically start around the Middle School years, where young people start to become more independent, think abstractly, and attempt to deal with the range of emotional and biological changes taking place within them.

Formation during this time is critical and often decisive for young people. That’s why Saint Christopher is constantly examining, adjusting, and researching how we can best help parents raise Middle School saints. A sampling of a few of our offerings includes:

Small-group and discussion based formation, so middle schoolers can begin to process the truths of our Catholic Faith and also apply them to their lives

Service to our neighbor, both on a regular basis and also through summer service trips

Retreats and pilgrimages to help the Faith come to life and awaken our hearts with beauty

An emphasis on community-building with other area parishes, to help teens build a wide net of relationships with others striving to follow Jesus Christ
