Middle School

Middle school Faith Formation at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary provides a safe, fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. Our resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth.

Middle School Youth Ministry

Youth Group

Every Sunday we dive into a new topic that is important to teens. Things that happen in school, things that happen in society – and how do we fit that all in our Christian lives? We have some nights that we focus on service and some that are just plain social-fun nights! We have a lot of fun while learning about our faith, guaranteed! We hope to see you there and know that friends are always welcome!

We meet Sundays from 6:30 – 8:00pm in the Youth Room, which is in the lower level of the Church. Please enter through the doors around the back of the Church (at the circle drive), go to the left towards the Parish Office, continue through the doors, and you’ll see the room to the left. We’ll have signs to help find the way!
