Middle School Youth Ministry

Welcome to St. Michael Parish's middle school youth group. Any student enrolled in the 6th, 7th or 8th grade Religious Education classes or parish school receives e-mail notices of the planned activities throughout the year, but any middle school student is welcome to join us for activities! A middle school flyer is sent four times a year: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer and reminders are often sent throughout the year. Most planned events do ask you to RSVP so that space, supplies or transportation can be planned in advance. If you would like to be part of our email list please contact Theresa Simeo or Kathy Scholz.
