The Edge Program (6th, 7th, 8th Grades)

Edge is a program designed to create a positive experience of the Catholic Church for all sixth, seventh, and eighth graders at St. Joseph's Parish along with their friends.  There are two options for Edge: 1) The first and third Sunday of the month September through May.  We begin with breakfast at 8:30 am, have our Edge session from 9-10:25 am, and then go to 10:30 am Mass; or 2) The first and third Wednesday of the month September through May. There is an optional open gym from 6-6:30 pm. Edge meets from 6:30-8 pm. Sessions follow a Gather, Proclaim, Break, Send format and begins with a small group project or brainstorming activity, then large group talk, followed by small group discussion and either an individual or group project, i.e. craft, skit, creating a game. We end with prayer.

Life Teen Program (Grades 9-12)

Life Teen is geared toward high school teens as a preparatory program for the sacrament of Confirmation. (See Confirmation section below for information specific to Confirmation.) Teens will gather on Sunday nights for Life Teen Masses, complete with our youth band Jam for the Lamb, twice a month on the second and fourth Sundays, October through April. After Mass the Life Night begins, following a Gather, Proclaim, Break, and Send format. We begin with “snack and chat” time so everyone can mingle and reconnect with friends that they have not seen for a while. After “snack and chat” we usually have a large group activity, followed by a large group talk, small group discussion, and finish in prayer at 8:15 pm.

Confirmation (11th Grade)

Confirmation meets on the second and fourth Sunday of the month, October through April and on other specified dates. We begin with Life Teen Mass at 5:30 pm and then go into our Confirmation session. Teens are usually Confirmed in eleventh grade.* Confirmation teens are expected to fully participate in their faith and community. In addition to Confirmation sessions, they will attend the Confirmation retreat and complete at least 20 hours of community service.

*Prior to registering for Confirmation year, teens must have attended two years of Life Teen, have attended at least one retreat, youth rally, or mission’s trip, and have completed ten hours of service per year prior to their Confirmation year. If they do not meet this prerequisite, they may not be Confirmed until twelfth grade, depending on what they have to do to fulfill the above noted requirements.

Jam for the Lamb

Upbeat contemporary Christian band formed from St. Joseph's Youth and adults that leads songs and worship at the 5:30pm Life Teen Mass on the second and fourth Sundays October through April.  Seventh grade through adult are invited to participate in the band.  Vocalists and instrumentalists are welcome to join.

 St. Joseph's Hands and Hearts Ministry

This is a service group for anyone that is in sixth grade through adult. (If there is a family involved, and the parents are present, younger children can help out depending on the project.) We help in the local parish community and local community. If you are in need of help from the Hands and Hearts team please call Lori Labadie at 262-662-3317 at the CFM office or eamil at llabadie@stjoesbb.com.  The group can help with a variety of things from outdoor yardwork to painting to cleaning tasks. 

If you would like to add your name to the list of volunteers please call Lori as well.  When help is needed with a project, an email is sent out to the entire team asking for help, and then whoever can make it can let Lori know. No one is expected to attend every event.  It is a great ministry to be able to help when you can and where you can.
