Youth Faith Formation
At St. Thomas we have a youth group that is open to middle- and high-school students, beginning in sixth grade. Youth and their adult leaders (and frequently Fr. Scott) get together at least once a month. There is a ‘youth room’ in the parish office where kids meet but sometimes our time together takes us to other places. The youth group seeks to create gatherings that focus on three areas:
1. Faith formation (growing in understanding of the Christian way of living),
2. Social activities that build connections and are enjoyable, and
3. Outreach projects that help kids to learn about the needs of the community in which they live and gives them a chance to do some hands-on service.
