STAY Catholics 7th-12th grade ministry

Register for 7th-12th Grade

Early Registration Ends May 31, 2022

STAY Catholics has a wide variety of activities and opportunities to engage the community throughout the year. STAY Catholics is for all public, private (both Catholic and non-Catholic), and home school students, in grades 7-12. We are here to pursue truth together as a community, continue to grow in our faith, and become disciples of Jesus Christ.

This year, we will be back to our in-person gatherings at the St. Thomas Aquinas Upper School. We will continue meeting in both large and small group formats. Each teen will be assigned a small group which will be led by two of our dedicated adult core team members, who are consistent and present with the teens every Sunday night.  These groups are broken down by age and gender (i.e. 7th grade women, 8th grade boys, etc).  Any teen from 7th-12th grade can come get plugged into a small group and begin growing with their STAY Catholics community.

Our main weekly small group meetings will be Sunday evenings at 5:50PM - 7:20pm. If teens wish to attend the 5pm or 7:30pm Mass there will be room to do so!

We will also be gathering in person twice each semester for Mass or Confession together as a group, at the St. Thomas Aquinas main church building located on Kenwood Ave. These gatherings will be socially distant and follow all church guidelines for safety, including masks and proper spacing.
