Our Middle School Ministry (6th-8th Grade) is a fun and engaging way to get pre-teens not only connected to their faith but also connected to their peers. The Ministry uses exciting games, engaging talks, and small group discussions as it’s primary teaching tools as they break open the truths of our Catholic faith.
6th-8th graders meet every second and fourth Wednesday of the month in The Underground (located in the basement of the Parish Center)!
Middle School Ministry Upcoming Events
The Diocese of Rockford has recently asked that all youth ministry programs throughout the area follow some new guidelines to continue to ensure the safety and well being of both the students and adults involved in Parish Ministry. Most of these updated guidelines were already in place here at St. Bridget, but to be sure we are acting within diocese policy we have decided to have a formal registration for both our Middle School and High School Student Ministry programs. To register your student for the St. Bridget Middle School Ministry, fill out this form now!
