High School Formation
High School Faith Formation
St. Thomas Aquinas' High School Faith Formation program is open to all high school age members of all St. Thomas Aquinas families. This is a three-year program, usually starting freshmen year in High School. Classes are held once a month. Students who attend a Catholic high school are expected to attend the classes only in their junior year. Upon completion of the program, students will have the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Classes are held once or twice a month. Most classes start with a Teen Mass followed by class time.
6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Youth Mass
7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Class
Youth Mission Trips
In 2009, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish sponsored its first High School Youth Mission Trip. The intent was to give our high school youth a special opportunity to grow in faith and to live out the social teachings of the church. To "go in peace to live and serve the Lord." The trip was very successful, as can be evidenced by the tremendous growth and interest in the Youth Mission Trips ever since.
Making these trips a reality has almost become a year-round effort. In addition to giving up a week of their summer to participate on the trip itself, the students also donate their time and talent to help with the planning process, volunteer at various Parish functions as a way to say “Thank You” to the Parish for their support, and to participate in fundraising efforts to help defray the costs related to the trips.
These mission trips provide a fun and tremendously rewarding experience for our high school youth and represent an important step in their individual faith journeys. They come to see the face of Christ in those they serve and in those they serve with. It is exciting and reassuring to have so many young people willing to give witness to their faith and to share of their time and talents. Thank you, St. Thomas Aquinas Parish, for your continued support.
