MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH

PaxConnex

Grades 7–8


Session Times: Sundays 6:30pm or Wednesdays, 4:30pm

​The 7th & 8th Grade Faith Formation program has been named PaxConnex to reflect the spirit of Pax Christi and the connection of our youth to our faith community.  The Faith Formation team strives for a program that truly reflects the Mission, Vision and Values of the Pax Christi Community.

PaxConnex is a bridge between the Finding God/Good Shepherd programs and the High School Faith Interest Connectors program. Equal emphasis on the three movements of faith formation: Head (Knowledge), Heart (Passions), and Hands (Service and Justice) will be the catalyst for increasing our youth’s knowledge in an engaging and meaningful way which will strengthen their relationship with the Church.

The HEAD component focuses on increasing knowledge of our Catholic faith and will follow a traditional faith formation classroom learning format. Seventh and eighth graders will gain a deeper understanding of Scripture, Creed, Sacraments, Prayer, Social Justice, and Catholic Morality.

The HEART component has been modeled after Pax Christi’s successful Faith Interest Connectors program for our high school youth.  In this section, youth will partake in experiences that will connect them with parishioners and learn how our faith can be applied in their daily lives.

In the HANDS component, youth will integrate their knowledge learned into action throughout the community by participating in service projects in our faith community and in the community at large, and then discussing the relationship between service and faith.

Every class session will be designed to be engaging, interactive, and challenging. Youth will be encouraged to apply what they learn to their daily lives and will discuss how their faith is being lived out. Youth are encouraged to participate in weekly liturgies, service opportunities, and retreat experiences offered throughout the year.
