Middle School (grades 7 - 8)

Teen Bible Study

A unique Journey of Faith designed with adolescents in mind.

Small group sessions held bi-monthly on Wednesdays or Thursdays, fall to spring.

Confirmation normally is a two-year preparation period and the celebration of the sacrament takes place in the spring of the second year.  Canteen is a newsletter created for the Candidates preparing to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation with the help of their Catechists.

Confirmation enriches the baptized with the strength of the Holy Spirit so that they can better witness to Christ in word and deed (Catechism of the Catholic Church [CCC], no. 1285). Anointed by the Holy Spirit at Confirmation, Christians strengthen their bond with the Church and become better equipped to carry out the Church’s mission of love and service.  Confirmation:  Strengthened by the Spirit, Called to Action.   Read More . . . 

St. Mary Our Lady of the Snows, 2nd year Middle School Confirmation Candidates must attend a retreat. There are several retreats offered in 2017 including: Howell, NET Ministries and Subiaco.
