Journey to Adulthood (J2A) (Grades 7-12)
The Journey to Adulthood (J2A) program is structured with three sections, Rite-13 (Grades 7-8); J2A (Grades 9-10); YAC (Young Adults in the Church) (Grades 11-12). This is a program that offers youth who are growing toward adulthood the opportunity to learn to trust themselves and each other as they grow in faith.
The Journey to Adulthood experience incorporates much learning and laughter, but it takes our young people seriously and gives them real work to do. The program is based on the key concept that "Manhood and Womanhood are gifts from God, but Adulthood must be earned." It encourages teens to explore the four areas of Self, Spirituality, Sexuality and Society, and learn to connect their faith to all areas of life. It is our hope that this program fosters an environment of wholeness and authenticity and helps teens develop a life-changing relationship with the God who created them.
The program uses the collective wisdom of adults in the parish to beckon young people into responsible, faithful adulthood. It calls the entire congregation into a deeper relationship with their young people and it calls each one of us – whatever our age – to think about the gifts we have been given. When we find ways to use our gifts to be God’s presence in the world, we can ALL be changed in very powerful ways.
