At this time, Youth Faith Formation Classes are suspended until further notice due to Coronavirus.  We will continue to monitor recommendations and post updates.

Faith Formation — Grades 6–12

With our Youth Ministry we encourage the students to work together to learn, share their faith, serve others, and have fun while making the world a better place. Components include prayer, service, justice-seeking, socializing, examining our rich Catholic traditions, and relationship-building. We ask our Youth participants to attend 4:30pm Mass with their families, and stay for the program afterwards.  

  • Sundays, 5:30–7:00pm, following the 4:30pm Eucharist.
  • A light meal is provided at a nominal fee.

Basilica YES - Youth Engaged in Service, will be back for a third year. This service program is designed for our recently confirmed high school students. This is a great opportunity for gaining leadership experience, involving yourself in the community, growing your faith, and continuing your friendships at The Basilica.

2019-2020 Registration

Our program runs from September to May. Registration is from April through September.  
Registration is now online.

Detailed information about this year's program can be found here.

If you join The Basilica after our program year starts, we still warmly welcome you to enroll your children for the balance of the program year.  


Weekly Youth Meal

Each week, the youth gather prior to programming to share a meal. Please help us offset the cost of this by contributing here.
