Faith Formation Coordinator
Faith Formation for grade 9 youth begins in January with the Alpha Youth program. Alpha Youth is an interactive film series that helps adult leaders and parents connect with young people and help them discover and deepen a relationship with Jesus.
Alpha Youth meets young people exactly where they are at and asks simple, but profound questions which allow youth to search their hearts for an open and honest response rather than a "textbook" answer. In Alpha, there is no judgement but rather a freedom to search and find meaning in Christ.
Alpha Youth challenges young people to consider what they truly believe. In small group sharing and discussion young people are given the opportunity to own their faith and learn from the shared stories of others.
Alpha Youth small groups are facilitated by two adults and consist of 5-6 youth per group. They will meet weekly for 12 weeks during the spring semester of their 9th grade year. This program fulfills first-year preparation for Confirmation.
