7th and 8th graders meet every two or three weeks, allowing for busy schedules. The group may be working on a service project, eating together, playing games, discussing a current event or book, exploring questions of faith, role-playing, taking field trips, or meeting with other youth groups. An atmosphere of community, trust, and service allows our middle school kids to celebrate the transition time from youth to young adulthood.
9th through 12th grader and their leaders meet about once a month to explore ways of being in community. Members help determine the activities, such as: activities in NYC, the Midnight Run, games night lock-in, fundraising walks, a night at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Christmas caroling, ice-skating, retreats, and discussions on topics that matter. Meeting times vary, depending on the activity.
