Middle School Ministry   Middle School Brochure
The Middle School Ministry consists of those who are in the 6th, 7th and 8th grade. These adolescents make up a large amount of those in our parishes. It is important that we recognize their presences and provide them with a safe and fun environment to meet others their age and learn about their Catholic faith. In order to do so the Archdiocese of Santa Fe Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry provides many resources and workshops that teach you how to begin your very own Middle School Ministry! It is the goal of the document Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry that your Middle School Ministry allows you:

  1. Empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today (RTV, p.9).
  2. To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community (RTV, p.11).
  3. To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person (RTV, p.15).
