As young people reach middle school, they begin to ask personal faith questions. It is also a time when they begin to wonder about, and look at, their relationship with the Church. Together we will learn, celebrate, and serve others as members of our Catholic community. STA provides an opportunity to grow in faith, develop a meaningful relationship with Jesus, gain a better understanding of our Catholic tradition, and plant roots for their adult years.
The program will include instruction, fellowship, prayer, service, and fun.
