Sparks Middle School Ministry
The St. Louis Sparks Middle School Ministry is a weekly event based ministry. The Sparks is a Catholic Middle School ministry which presents the truths of the Catholic faith in a hands on and relevant format. The format of the Sparks is designed to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional, educational and social needs of our middle school youth. Spark Nights allow our youth to learn about their faith through talks, skits, videos, small group discussions and retreats. We meet on Friday nights...starting on Friday, 7:00-9:00 p.m. in Wozniak Hall.

Young Church High School Ministry
Young Church is the High School Community at St. Louis. We meet year round, with gatherings most Sunday nights throughout the school year, and have weekly events during the summer. Young Church is a community that lives and breathes far beyond the Sunday meetings at St. Louis. We go out into our diverse communities and live lives as followers of Jesus, embracing our Culture and the Catholic Church. We seek to glorify God and lead joyful lives in our schools, families, friends and all those we meet. Together we go on retreats, summer trips, diocesan events; we have Bible Studies, we do pray, we go to Mass, we eat tacos, play Uno, watch Netflix, enjoy what Austin has to offer, and we laugh a lot too. In all we do, we are Missionaries of Hope. We live lives of Joy, together. Join us! We meet on Sunday Nights, from 6:30 p.m.-8:15 p.m. in the Guadalupe Room (Youth Room) in Wozniak Hall!

High School Confirmation Preparation
The High School Preparation program at St. Louis King of France seeks to, “lead the Christian toward a more intimate union with Christ and a more lively familiarity with the Holy Spirit--his actions, his gifts, and his biddings--in order to be more capable of assuming the apostolic responsibilities of Christian life” (CCC 1309).
To this end, catechesis strives, “to awaken a sense of belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ, the universal church, as well as the parish community” (CCC 1309).
Within the framework of the USCCB’s document, Renewing the Vision, the High School Confirmation Preparation seeks to provide catechesis which works towards the three main goals of ministry with adolescents:
Goal 1: To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.
Goal 2: To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.
Goal 3: To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.
Per diocesan requirements a minimum of two years of formal religious education in parish or Catholic school precedes preparation for the celebration of the sacrament of confirmation.
