Life Teen and High School RE Courses
Last Week of Life Teen: Sunday, May 13th
Life Teen is for teenagers in grades 9-12. As teens are faced with many pressures and joys as they become young adults, Life Teen helps provide a deep understanding of their Catholic identity, and offers many opportunities for teenagers to grow and nurture a close relationship with Jesus Christ through the Sacraments, particularly Confirmation, which high school students receive between their junior and senior year. Life Teen will meet from 4:15-6:15 (with dinner included) on Sundays in the SFA Elementary School and Life Teen House. Following Life Teen, teens are encouraged to attend the 6:30 p.m. mass at the Waldo Site.
High School RE Foundational Courses
Prior to receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, students (who are not attending Roncalli High School) will be required to take six foundational courses in Catholic beliefs and practices: Jesus Christ and the Paschal Mystery, Scripture, Sacraments, Church, Morality, and Social Justice. This is to ensure that all students receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation have a solid foundation in their faith and can articulate the truths of their faith. Each course is six hours in length over 2-3 days. To allow for flexibility and be mindful of busy schedules, students can take courses at a time that works for their schedule and courses do not need to be taken in any particular order. The courses will take place throughout the year, with three occurring in fall, three occurring in spring, and all six occurring again in the summer. Ideally, students should be taking 1-2 courses/year from the summer before their freshmen year to the summer before their junior or senior year. Students can take courses while enrolled in Confirmation also, so long as they have completed the six courses before Confirmation
Students can sign up for courses once they're posted by emailing Elizabeth at email@example.com or via text, call, or Facebook message. Please sign up for courses at least a week in advance so we may plan accordingly. Records of who attended which courses will be kept for your convenience. Students need to attend all sessions of a course in order to receive credit for completing the course.
