Our Breakthrough program is for teens who would like to receive the Sacrament of Communion and Confirmation. We begin with our youth ministry program, HERO at 6:30 pm on Wednesday evenings. The teens engage in service, community building, games, and reflect on the following Sunday gospel readings. When HERO is over at 8:00 pm, the teens participating in Breakthrough shift gears and learn about a different topic related to the life, death and Resurrection of Jesus and teachings of the Catholic Church.
So far this year, we have had many dynamic speakers and presentations and our teens have grown in their faith. As we move closer to Lent, we are looking forward to a retreat, a meeting with Father Andrew and preparations for receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Please pray for our teens as they move towards Easter. When Father Andrew, along with the team, determines that each teen is prepared, they will be invited to become fully initiated into the Catholic faith by receiving the Sacraments of Communion and Confirmation during the weekend mass after Easter.
Do you know a teen who would like to become fully initiated into the church? Contact Donna Remaley, Faith Formation Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 609 268 7742.
