For Youth in Grades 9 through 12

Cross Road Registration closed on August 19th, 2019

Cross Road is a small group-based faith formation program for our high school youth, centered on the Mass, offering food and fellowship, in a fun, social setting and safe environment!

Our Cross Road sessions meet twice per month during the traditional academic year. Participants are encouraged to attend the Sunday 5:30pm youth-focused Mass. After Mass, high school youth will check in at the Community Center for a delicious meal and social fellowship time with peers. Next, youth move into Fellowship Hall for games, an opening prayer, followed by a dynamic presentation, through which they will learn the lesson of the week. Then, it’s on to small group, where youth will gather with other youth of their age, Peer Ministers and their adult leaders to break open the message and build relationships. Finally, everyone will gather back in the large group for prayer, their mission for the week, and dismissal.

In addition to our twice per month Sunday Cross Road sessions, other social events, special events, retreats and service opportunities will help build upon the teachings presented each week and engage Cross Road families as well. These gatherings will help our youth to grow in a deeper relationship with Christ and one another.
