A Lenten offering for high schoolers is Faith in an Anxious World. This is a 4 week study on anxiety and our faith. It will take place on Sunday evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm in the Faith Formation Office (located at the backside of the Power of Prayer Adoration Chapel building). The dates are March 8, 22, 29 and April 5. This study is for an 9th-12th grader who is looking for support and to understand anxiety and depression better. Come as you are able. If you miss a week, there is no problem. We want to support you in your journey of faith, so come learn how Jesus walked with people in their anxieties and difficult times.
