Welcome to Middle School Faith Formation!
COVID-19 Preparedness Plan:
Please click HERE to view our COVID-19 Preparedness Plan to help guide our return to Faith Formation.
Please view this document to see if in-person Faith Formation classes are right for your family.
We will also be offering an at-home/online option for all PreK-12 grades for Faith Formation 2020-2021.
Middle School Faith Formation (MS Crew) is designed for our 6th through 8th graders to find community while engaging in their Catholic faith. Holy Name of Jesus will be offering programs in-person and at home/online. Both programs will offer prayer, a look into the following week's readings for Mass, teaching from the Catechism, and virtual small groups through weekly Zoom calls.
Sessions for in-person MS Crew will take place on Wednesdays from 6:30pm - 7:30pm, with small groups happening online during the week at assigned times.
At home/online sessions for MS Crew will be emailed Thursday mornings directly to your inbox through Constant Contact, with small groups happening online during the week at assigned times.
MS Crew Topics and Schedule
Curriculum & Materials
We use a combination of sources for our MS Crew curriculum - EDGE from Lifeteen, The Bible, The Catechism of the Catholic Church, the YouCat, YDisciple, FORMED.org. We rely on all of these sources to build our talks, activities, and small group questions.
As part of MS Crew, we will be diving into scripture every week. Each middle schooler will be provided a copy of the Catholic Youth Bible to use for prayer and during our time together. If you are new to MS Crew or need a new copy, you can pick one up on the first night of MS Crew. If you already have a copy of the Catholic Youth Bible, feel free to bring it on Wednesday nights! It is also encouraged to bring a notebook and writing utensil for journaling and taking notes.
