Adult Mentors Needed
A program like this can only be run by parish support. I have to say that it’s been a joy to watch students grow but it has also been a joy to work with a great group of adults and parents who mentor students. We are always looking for more people who would be dedicated and called to minister to our youth. The commitment is once a week, either Wednesday with our Middle School students or Sunday evening with our High School students. If you feel like God is nudging your heart right now, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know what grade level you would like to work with.
Every Middle School student at St. Timothy should be registered for our 2023-2024 Youth Ministry and Faith Formation. We all remember that middle school was awkward and difficult. That hasn’t changed. However, societal shifts have made the middle school years more difficult than ever. It’s such an integral part of our students lives in these formative years in helping them develop a strong relationship with Christ and dealing with the many trials they will come face to face with in Middle School. Not only that but our EDGE Middle School program is fun, engaging and a place that students want to be apart of in our amazing Youth Center and gym that we utilize every single Wednesday. We realize sports and other extra curricular activities get in the way occasionally on Wednesdays but registering students gives them access to all our activities throughout the year including trips and retreat. Not only that but parents will also receive amazing online tools, resources and support groups that are sure to help you as a parent. So parents please register today!!!
