Service and Faith Enrichment

Service Requirements for Confirmation (grades 6-10)

All those anticipating involvement in the parish confirmation preparation program will be called to service in the school community, parish community, and local/global community. For details, see the Service and Faith Enrichment page.

Opportunities for Service and Faith Enrichment

The youth of St. Francis Borgia are invited to participate in activities and events that call them to celebrate, explore, or put into practice an important facet of their Catholic Christian faith. For details, see the Service and Faith Enrichment page.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities are regularly publicized – some tied to specific dates and some ongoing – that help young people earn their service hours in the various service categories referred to above. Watch for volunteer opportunities to be posted in the bulletin and on the “Volunteer/Share” page.

Retreats

Several retreat experiences are available for members of St. Francis Borgia within the youth ministry program. Age appropriate retreats are available for students in Grades 8 through 11. Parents, young adults, and high school seniors are particularly invited to participate as small group leaders or chaperones. See the Retreat Program page for details and permission slips.

Catholic Youth Ministry (CYM) Sports

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee sponsors parish-based sports leagues for Catholic youth in high school. Players must be parish members in grade 9-12 who participate in Christian Formation programs or Catholic high school education. Volleyball and basketball teams are formed in the fall of each year. The volleyball teams are co-ed and practice usually begins in late October with season-ending tournaments in December. Basketball teams are formed for boys and girls and the season usually begins in January with tournaments ending in March. Adults are needed as coaches and coordinators.

Social Events

Social events for youth are scheduled periodically and announced in the bulletin, and may be posted also on the News page or Events page.

Fundraisers

Various fundraisers are held during the year to help support our summer mission trip, youth conferences, and other youth events. Your financial support and prayers are greatly appreciated.
