“Behold, I make all things new.” Revelation 21:5

From His throne in heaven to the depths of your heart, these words of Jesus are an invitation for you to receive the new life that He alone can give. He is longing to elevate your life above the things of this world – to help you overcome fear, anxiety, confusion and doubt. He wants to break the things that hold you down and give you freedom from sin. He is calling you to follow Him and enter into a transforming experience with His love, grace, and mercy! He can make you new! This summer, join over 50,000 other Catholic teens at one of our 25 youth conferences and experience the joy of following Christ and being elevated by His love.

Kerygma Club 

Freshmen and Those New to HR High School Formation

While presenting the kerygma of Christ, youth are introduced to themes related to what it means to follow Christ by exploring the Christian anthropology of the human person, the four levels of happiness, personal giftings and God's grace, prayer, virtue, the beatitudes, redemptive suffering, and our human vocation.  
 

Small Discipleship Groups

Launched Periodically Throughout the Year

To help youth grow in their faith, we ask that they consider being part of small discipleship groups to study the faith more in depth to help them make sense of faith by seeking understanding, hold each other accountable in their growth in virtue, and explore tough questions. These accountability groups are gender-based.  If youth choose not to participate in a SDG, a meeting needs to be scheduled with the formation office to discuss the alternative.
 

Immediate Confirmation Preparation

Those Seeking Confirmation

The initial step for entering confirmation preparation is a personal meeting with the faith formation office.  From this meeting, a plan for preparing for confirmation will be determined based on the individual youth who is seeking.  Steps into the program may include kerygma club, the pre-confirmation retreat "Seeking Eldorado," and a letter requesting admittance into the confirmation preparation tprogram.  Youth will be admitted into this process after the July Year 1 Make-Up Retreat and after the October 2017 Seeking Eldorado retreat.

Those Who Have Already Been Confirmed

Youth meet once a month as a whole group, multiple times in gender specific small groups, and are invited to take on a more active role in the formation of youth who have not reached this level.  They are an integral part of our retreat teams and faith formation for Pre-K through 8th grade.
