We welcome all students in grades 9-12 whose families are registered members of All Saints Parish. GROW (God Renewing Our World) is a service based religious education program. We prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation which takes place during 11th grade. Our mission is to provide a positive, fun, and creative environment which includes service projects and facilitated faith formation sessions for high school youth to learn and grown in their Catholic Faith.
High School GROW/Confirmation registration forms and calendars can be found on the left sidebar. The curriculum will rotate between the following formats:
Class Night: Sunday Nights from 6 to 7:15 pm. High School Students will go to class from 6 to 7:15 p.m. We will have separate classes for 9th, 10th and Confirmation (11th or 12th graders).
High school students 10th grade and above have the option of helping with Middle School Youth ministry on Class nights from 7:15 to 8 pm. High School students can receive service credits for this.
Family Liturgy Nights: Sunday nights from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Middle School Students, High School Students, and their families are invited to worship together on a monthly basis on a special, Sunday evening liturgy. Middle and high school students serve by helping lead music, do the readings, and serve as altar servers, gift bearers, ushers, and extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist. Training opportunities will be available to those who would like to serve. This liturgy counts as a Sunday mass obligation…plus you can sleep in on Sunday morning once a month!
Service Classes: Saturday or Sunday afternoons or evenings Dates will vary; you will receive a schedule at the beginning of the school year. On many weekends, the service class will serve as our meeting on that weekend. Service projects may include helping the elderly, serving the poor, disadvantaged and at-risk homeless, feeding the hungry, working with the Angel Tree Program, working on the parish grounds, and much more. We have witnessed over the last few years how service has transformed our ministry and we are excited to bring more opportunities to our middle school students to serve as Jesus did.
Life on the Streets: This program is open parish wide for participants who will pledge a weekend of solidarity with the homeless at our Life on the Streets Retreat. Participants will sleep in cardboard boxes, forego showers and luxury items, work in teams on yard work and cleaning projects for residents in need, and worship and fellowship during this unique experience. Many opportunities are available for adults to serve with us during Life on the Streets.
High School Retreat: This retreat occurs in the spring. It is held at Camp Bayoca in Sevierville, TN. Our retreat is open to any high school student. Our theme for Spring 2014 is “Life is Beautiful.”
