High School Faith Formation

Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

- James 1:2-4




St. Thomas Aquinas church has a vibrant and diverse youth ministry.  There are a variety of programs and events designed to meet the needs of all high school teens.  Faith formation is critical during high school.  We encourage you and your teenager to become familiar with the available offerings and choose the program that works best.  ALL teenagers are invited and welcome.  We’d love to have you!

Life Nights (an alternative to a traditional classroom environment)

Life Nights run with the school year and are usually offered Sunday evenings. A typical Life Night could include games, ice breakers, large group proclaim, small group discussions, music and prayer. We, along with thousands of parishes across the country and around the world, use a curriculum produced by Life Teen.  Designed specifically to dive deeper into our Catholic faith, these nights are designed for fellowship, fun and above all, understanding and strengthening our faith.


Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation begins in Grade 8 in order to be confirmed in the fall of Grade 10.
