We are offering a hybrid model of Faith Formation that that will focus on the parents’ role as the first and best catechists for their children. We will provide in-person catechesis and a Google Classroom for children who will be receiving Sacraments in 2022. The Google Classroom is our “back-up plan,” so it is imperative that you provide a working email address that will be used for communication.

Life Teen’s goal is to “Lead Teens Closer to Christ.” As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church.
Because of this, the most important component of Life Teen is the Mass- Life Teen always ends with Mass! The Mass is the most important single thing we celebrate of our faith and the Catechism tells us the Eucharist is the Source and Summit of our Faith! We encourage teens (& families) to attend the 5 pm Life Teen Mass on Sundays.
Session Time: This year we’re taking a family focused approach. We plan to offer some in-person events for our high school students to safely gather and encounter Christ in the flesh. These events will be announced via Remind and the parish bulletin.
For all 9th-12th grade students.
Sacrament of Confirmation
In the Archdiocese of Atlanta, Confirmation preparation is at least a two year process that ends with students receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation in the 10th grade.
At St. Pius X, our 8th grade, or first year, students simply enroll in Life Teen and actively participate with at least 80% attendance. When these students reach the 10th grade they begin our more formal “Confirmation Prep” program.
Throughout students’ immediate preparation year, they participate in service projects both in the parish and in the community on a journey to live as fully initiated members of the parish.
Each year we offer numerous volunteer opportunities around our parish and in the community. Stop by the youth office to see what sign-ups are open this week!
Examples of opportunities include: Rivers Alive community waterway cleanup, setting up crosses for Veterans’ Day, serving as a group leader at retreats for our elementary retreats, assisting the elderly at parish dinners, serving food at parish events, visiting the sick and home-bound, packaging gifts for those in need during the holidays, stuffing Easter eggs for the parish egg hunt, and many more.
