Faith is not one size fits all. Jesus came so that we can have our own personal relationship with Him! Youth Discipleship creates opportunities for teens to discover who Jesus is and how to develop that relationship. Growth happens through prayer, service, and small group interactions. Teens will have a chance to ask questions about their faith and learn how to live out their mission of being a disciple of Jesus Christ.

High School is such an exciting time for teens as they start to take ownership of their faith journey. High School Youth Discipleship is here to help your teen find a path to walk with Jesus by their side. Youth are guided through the practice of our faith and develop habits of discipleship. We grow in community through small group discussion and service. We also offer opportunities to join other Catholic youth from around the state and country through events like the Wisconsin Catholic Youth Rally and the National Catholic Youth Conference.

When we are baptized, we are adopted by the Father and given the opportunity to participate in Christ’s role as Priest, Prophet, & King. Through Confirmation, God completes our Baptismal grace and deepens our call to live this three-fold mission. This is not a rite of passage or graduation from religious education. It is a sacrament of mission and power, giving Christians the strength and grace to live out the mission of Jesus Christ and His Church.
Teens can register for Confirmation Preparation on Friday, July 1, 2022. The cost is $185. Confirmation is to be celebrated in 2023 if they have met the following requirements:
Have been baptized
Will reach the age of 15 by September 1, 2022
Will participate in Youth Discipleship Small Groups fall of 2022 (both Catholic and Public School Youth)
Have attended a Catholic School OR Youth Discipleship Small Group for the year prior to and including the year of preparation. (2021-22 and 2022-23)
