Faith Formation and Youth Ministry for the Jeannette Catholic Community

Our parish communities of Sacred Heart and Ascension are gearing up to begin our Faith Formation and Youth Ministry seasons this October (2022). Our team looks forward to the opportunities to walk alongside you and your family as we being this new year of formation and ministry together.

Please note that young children currently enrolled in kindergarten through fifth grade for the 2022-23 year are eligible for Faith Formation. Youth Ministry gathers together teens entering sixth through twelfth grade. Faith Formation and Youth Ministry always include our students who attend a Catholic School.

Our goal is to journey with our young church one evening per month to unpack and unfold the beauty of The Mass, the source and summit of our faith. These nights include prayer, lessons, fun activities, small group discussions, and interactive opportunities to build community. This year, adults will also have the opportunity to participate in their own sessions surrounding The Mass, offering a chance for the entire family to grow together in faith.

Sessions will take place the first Wednesday of the month at Sacred Heart Church and School. The evening begins at 6:30 PM and concludes at 8:00 PM. The full list of dates can be found below.

If you plan to join us for the school year, Family Registration is required. Registration specific details are found below.
