Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades participate in a hybrid program that still provides curriculum while also introducing small groups and providing fun experiences to encourage the development of healthy, Catholic friendships. Middle school meets on Wednesdays only from 6:30-7:40 PM. For students who have not yet been confirmed, weekly participation is expected, in addition to attendance at sacramental preparation workshops. Please see Sacraments [provide link] for more information.
- 6th Grade: Students learn about the Mass through middle school-specific curricula, including “Altaration” and “Encounter,” while also having fun and growing friendships. 6th grade students are eligible to attend the Archdiocese of Denver middle school retreat, Mountain Madness, February 15-17, 2019 in Estes Park, Colorado.
- 7th & 8th Grades: This combined class seeks to provide strategies for students to handle the tribulations of this confusing age with faith and moral courage. Ranging from an exploration of how to establish deep, abiding friendships to empowering students to respond to questions about Catholicism in a highly secular world, these weekly meetings strive to encourage students’ burgeoning personal faith. High school students assist with leading small groups. 7th and 8th grade students receive priority when determining Risen Christ attendees at the Archdiocese of Denver middle school retreat, Mountain Madness, in Estes Park, Colorado, February 15-17, 2019.
