About Faith Formation Grades 7 & 8:
Faith Formation small group sessions for youth in grades 7 & 8 are held on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. The youth and catechists use The Catholic Connections Handbook and Breakthrough Bible, resources especially designed for middle schoolers, to explore teachings from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Scripture in an active and age appropriate way. The youth also participate in several fun activities including the Scavenger Hunt for Thanksgiving Food Baskets, the Diocese of Davenport Middle School Youth Rally, and the Grinnell Deanery Bowling Party. Registration for sessions takes place September. Sessions begin in late September and continue until the end of April. Adult leaders serve as table leaders at the weekly sessions.
