Faith Formation does not end with Confirmation! Our Vision team is made up of all Juniors and Seniors in high school who are interested in leadership development and living out their Confirmation through opportunities in our ministry. Mostly made up of teens who are Confirmed, Vision is a retention program that prepares teens to be leaders today – not just for the future in the church. A discernment of individual gifts and an outlet to use those gifts to glorify God is at the center of our vision.
Vision meets every other Wednesday evening in the Youth Ministry Room. Times vary whether it is a social or formation evening.
Our Vision Leadership Retreat is local, on the last weekend of June each year
Vision Team Registration Packet 2016-17
Scheduled Wednesdays from 6:00 to 8:00 PM
All Vision teens must register for the program. All funds from Vision Registration are designated for Vision monthly expenses and to offset costs of Vision teens involvement in other aspects of the Youth Faith Formation program. All registered Vision teens will receive a Vision team sweatshirt (designed each year by the teens). All registered Vision teens receive a discount to attend retreats as leadership support.
Socials are designed to be community builders for our parish Vision teens. Dinner is served at our socials (think teens palette – pizza, spaghetti, etc.) for all teens who attend. Music and monthly birthday raffles are always a great way to celebrate life (all teens with a birthday in that month get entered into a raffle for gift cards!). These are very informal evenings when teens can arrive when they can and stay as long as they can too. There is very little on the “agenda” at our monthly socials.
Scheduled Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 PM
Formation Nights are designed to be nights of leadership development for our team. We make the best of our time together focusing on prayer, reflection, discussion of current events and issues of faith and morals. We hope that teens can arrive on time and stay for the full formation to continue to grow in knowledge and wisdom through our formation nights.
