High School Faith Formation — The High School Faith formation program will meet once or twice per month. Please see the calendar for the dates we will meet. They have been bolded on the calendar. High school faith formation is open to all 9-12th graders and takes place at St. Paul. We will be exploring many topics that are applicable to teenager's lives including ways to pray, lives of the saints, Catholic beliefs that are counter-cultural, God's design for our bodies, marriage, and intimacy, and much more. Please encourage our high school students to attend this dynamic program that will help inspire them to live as God calls them to live: bold and fully alive!
