Sunday mornings are a great time to get together with our friends, old and new. We are so excited about our new curriculum; it sparks new and fresh ideas of having fun while we discover a thoughtful understanding of our faith. Look for us in the parish hall classroom (St. Lydia Room) at church school time. Check out the other things we have going on, outside of Sunday mornings, below.

Our Youth Group meets every Sunday evening from 5-7 pm in the St. Lydia room off the Parish Hall. Our meetings are a mixed bag of fun, outreach activities, sharing sacred space, and talking about things that matter. A typical evening will have a shared meal followed by separate programming for Middle School and High School aged youth.
Parents: You can help support our Youth Group by signing up to provide dinner for a Sunday evening.

The Rite of Confirmation is a community celebration honoring an individual’s personal commitment to follow the way of Jesus. At St. Simon’s, youth in grades nine and up are invited to journey together into what it might mean to see the world through God’s heart of love. We call this our Seeker program, and we draw on a variety of sources, including Conform Not Confirm, to support the youth in their exploration. At the end of the series, each youth is invited to decide whether or not to affirm the promises made on their behalf at baptism and make a personal commitment to this Way through the rite of Confirmation. Confirmation is not a ‘back cover’ to our growing in faith, but is one step along the way as we continue seeking to embody Christ in all we do.
Please contact Carl Raezer, Associate for Music and Youth, for more information and session schedules.

Our Mission Trip this Summer will be in the Appalachian region in Eastern Kentucky. The trip is open to rising 9th graders through graduated seniors. We will be working with an organization called Good Neighbors, Inc. which does home repair for working poor in the area. Please let Carl Raezer, our Associate for Music & Youth, know if your youth is interested.
