MIDDLE SCHOOL CATECHESIS
Patrick Middle School Formation uses the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies series
as its basic curriculum guide. Each week the Middle School teens receive
a weekly magazine that covers the Gospel lesson for the coming weekend
so that teens are ready to enter into the action of worship at mass.
Teens meet in small groups hosted by at least two unrelated adults in a
home setting. Catechists guide the discussion of the topic in a small
group session where the young person's voice both “needs to” and “can”
be heard. Additional service opportunities and social sessions round out
the Middle School curriculum providing teens with the connections to
each other, the parish, and the community.
