Middle and High School Small Groups

In our small groups, middle and high school students learn more about their Catholic faith and identity in Christ through engaging activities and meaningful relationships. We want to help younger generations grow in their relationship with Christ, so this program is open to all teens, no matter their beliefs. Register HERE.


Confirmation preparation is for all teens entering 9th grade (and older) in the fall. To enroll, candidates must be in high school and a member of St. Joseph Parish or attend St. Joseph School in Cockeysville. For registration, candidates will be required to complete an online form and submit a 500-word essay or 3–5 minute video. Click HERE for more information.
