Confirmation ClassesWith January just around the corner we are starting to prepare for our confirmation classes. This Spiritual journey will begin in January with Father John McGinn and Sue McHugh leading the group. The program is for youth Grades 9-12 and will run 13 consecutive weeks. The Confirmation Ceremony will be held here at St Stephen’s in October of 2018 with the Bishop in attendance. There is a mandatory informational Breakfast meeting on Sunday, November 19th at 9am, for both parents and youth to discuss dates, times and requirements for Confirmation. We are very excited about the program, and look forward to sharing it with you! Please RSVP for the meeting to firstname.lastname@example.org
CIA (Christ in All) Offerings
Every Wednesday evening youth grades 6-8 gather for an evening together full of meaningful conversation, sacred space, and of course, a some fun! Our nights begin with preparing a meal together followed by a Bible Story. Then we have feast (Pizza) and fellowship. Youth Group is a great place to get to know other kids, ask the big questions, and to serve others.
Members of the Youth Group Staff are Cathy Forest, Lee Dickson, Nancy St John and Sue McHugh.
If Wednesday evenings do not fit into your youths schedule we also are offering a Sunday program at 10am in the Bowser room(up near the kitchen) led by Lee Dickson.
