Navigation - Parent Connection

Parents please join us at WayPoint at our program called “Navigation”.  Come and learn the content in-depth of what the youth are covering for the night.  This will allow for faith-filled conversations to take place between you and your child on the way home from WayPoint.  All parents are welcomed to attend.  We will meet in the lobby at Shiloh Point Elementary at the same time and have refreshments and finger foods for social time to get to know other parents, followed by the teachings and prayer.  Don’t sit in your car waiting for your youth to learn about their faith, come join us and grow in your faith!


Food! Snacks! Treats!

Thank you to all the parents that signed up to donate snacks for the youth.  The second class of the month is “Treat Night”!  We still have openings to sign up and donate snacks.  Please sign up to donate snacks for the youth group so they can have a nice snack during the night.

In addition to being a young, vibrant middle school youth group, WayPoint is our Confirmation prerequisite foundational building catechesis middle school program. The nautical term, WayPoint, refers to an intermediate point or place on a route or line of travel, a stopping point or point at which course is change. Middle School is definitely that point that you stop and perhaps even change course as you prepare for high school. Our goal is to help set a Godly path. WayPoint, St. Brendan’s middle school youth program, uses the Edge curriculum from LifeTeen. Please Click Here to find out more about this curriculum. This ministry is focused on reaching teens, helping them to encounter Christ and form a personal relationship with Him, feeding their faith and love for the Catholic Church, and sending them into their world to live as Christians.

WayPoint will meet on Sunday nights from 6:15 to 8:15 during the school year. We invite to enroll your seventh grader and begin the journey in WayPoint. What a wonderful investment in your child's faith life! Looking ahead at Confirmation prep, you MUST enrolled in the 7th and 8th grades to complete the two consecutive years of mandatory catechesis in order to be confirmed in the 10th grade, Please Click Here for all the details on the Journey to Confirmation.

WayPoint Middle School Youth Group takes place most Sunday evenings from 6:15pm- 8:15pm at Shiloh Point Elementary School. Any middle school student in 7th – 8th grade registered at St. Brendan’s Catholic Church is welcomed to register.
