Welcome to another very exciting year of High School Faith Formation here at St. John’s! In all that we do in our High School Faith Formation Program, whether it be through classes, retreats, service projects or sacrament, we are striving to develop and grow disciples of Jesus Christ. Our goal is not only to help our young people learn and live the Catholic faith, but to enable them to grow in their personal relationship with Jesus, so they can be His hands and feet in this world. Please take some time to look through the program materials to become acquainted with the mini-course approach. This is a very unique program that tries to meet the needs of a busy teen and family, while still providing a solid foundation of faith formation each year. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions along the way!
Blessings, Ms. Koehler
