YDM Sunday Nights

Sunday nights with the Youth Discipleship ministry is designed for grades 7-12, including Confirmation. It is held the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm. Most catechesis will take place in two groups: middle school and high school; but some events will be together.  We will all gather in the Day Chapel (through the main enterance) arriving at 5:50 so that we can get the fun started right at 6pm.  Pick up will be at 7;35 from the gathering space/main doors.


St. Joe’s is proud to be offering our confirmation candidates a unique and relevant Confirmation preparation experience produced by Ascension Press - "Chosen: This is Your Catholic Faith". Chosen is a life-changing journey through the Catholic faith for teensin which they will hear from compelling speakers, both live and via video, and engage in small group disussions and mentorship with our fabulous Confirmation catechists.

Along with our other high school session, Confirmation sessions are held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm. There are other meetings and events scheduled and more information will be given at our Parent/Student meeting on September 10th from 12-1:00pm.
