We of St. Francis Xavier Parish, are excited about our ministry to our high school age parishioners. This ministry is facilitated through the efforts of many people. Our parents and many other adults in the community interact with youth and have an impact on the growth and development of teens, particularly in the area of Christian values.

The high school students who wish to be confirmed are invited to participate in the Quest Confirmation Program from October through May.

Quest Confirmation participants are asked to participate in four elements of parish and faith life in order to make faith an active part of their daily living.

  • Sunday Eucharist (on a regular basis)
  • Service Opportunities (with their peers, sponsor, and family)
  • Quest Once-a-Month Gatherings (5PM Teen Sunday Mass and Group Meeting after Mass)
  • Understanding Vocation as God’s Invitation to Use Their Gifts

Quest Group Monthly Gatherings will be once a month where we will gather with the entire Confirmation group and then break out into small groups. These gatherings at the parish in Joyce Hall, they provide opportunities for relationship building, discussion on issues facing teens, service opportunities, growth in the understanding of scripture, and fun. After Confirmation year, teens actively collaborate with the Youth Minister in shaping the direction, discussion, and activities they want to be involved in at the parish and community.

 If you have questions or would like more information on the Quest Confirmation Program for high school teens, please contact Elis Guidice at (708) 352-4555 or sfxreligioused@sfxlg.org.
