Middle School Faith Formation

At St. Thomas Becket, we aim for our Middle School Faith Formation program to engage the youth of our parish in learning about their faith, build connections and relationships with fellow parishioners both youth and adult, and have fun with their time spent at church.

Our normal Wednesday night Faith Formation schedule looks something like this:

  • 7:30-8:00 - Large Group
    • All 3 grades (6, 7, 8) meet together in the Commons area.
    • We'll play a game or do something fun, maybe sing a song or two, and talk a little about an aspect of our faith.
  • 8:00-8:45 - Small Group Time
    • Students divide out into their small groups by grade. ¬†Each grade has a lesson for the evening. ¬†Small groups typically have 8-10 students and 2 adults catechist leaders.
      • 6th Graders spend the year learning about stories from the Old Testament.
      • 7th Graders focus on learning about Jesus and the Gospels.
      • 8th graders learn more about parts of the Mass, their origins, and what they mean.
