How is the Teen Youth Ministry program different from QUEST?

QUEST is the Confirmation Preparation program that teens participate in during the school year leading up to their Confirmation, typically their first year in High School (but other grades are welcome too!).  QUEST Groups fall under the direction of Elis Guidice, Director of Religious Education at sfxreligioused@sfxlg.org.  These groups are guided by parent volunteers with monthly meetings.  QUEST participants are welcome to participate in ANY teen youth group activity as long as it doesn’t conflict with their QUEST commitments.


My teen wasn’t able to get confirmed during the pandemic. What are my options? 


If your teen completed their 8th grade year via the day school or through the religious education program, regardless of what grade they are in high school right now, there is still time to register for the Quest Confirmation program!  If your teen did not complete their 8th grade year of catechesis due to covid last year and is a 9th grader this year, they have the option of a “double enrollment” in our 8th grade virtual asynchronous RE class and then their 9th grade Quest group. Please email the Religious Education office to register or if you have any questions at sfxreligioused@sfxlg.org
