High School Youth Ministry Schedule


The partnered faith communities of Saint Francis Xavier and the SIU-C Newman Catholic Student Center are committed to providing quality religious formation and socialization for our high school aged youth.  We off a Teens In Spirit program for all high schoolers and their friends to attend in monthly social gatherings.  We also offer Confirmation preparation in a two year catechetical program using the "Chosen" series from Ascension Press. Year One is for 9th graders.  Year Two for 10th graders.  Bishop Braxton will confirm our 10th graders every year beginning in 2018.

We will be attending the National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana on November 16th-20th.  Contact Bill Harper for details.
