High School Youth Group
The High School Youth Group is open to students from the public high school system, home schools, or O'Gorman High School. If students who are not parishioners at Christ the King wish to join, please inquire (contact information below), but more than likely, we would be glad to have you! As your child pursues excellence in academics, athletics, and/or extracurriculars, please do not forget that their relationship with Jesus Christ & His Church is the most important investment they can make!
While the home ought always be the primary area of faith formation, we invite you to come be formed as a disciple of Jesus Christ alongside other high school peers! Join us for Sacred Scripture, new friends, fun activities, and prayer!
FRESHMEN: While the schedule will likely coincide with Sophomore Confirmation Preparation, it is not directly related.
SENIORS, JUNIORS & SOPHOMORES: Meetings will be on the off weeks from Sophomore Confirmation & Freshman Youth Group. Any sophomores currently in Confirmation Preparation are asked to prioritize that, but if you are up to double-dip, please join us!
We will meet in the Campus Ministry Lounge (old side chapel) on Wednesday evenings from 6:40 to 8 PM - approximately every other week - beginning in September. To keep updated with meeting times, please email Cody Fischer to get on the email or text list (or follow the CTK Youth Group Instagram: @ctkhighschool).
To register your child for free, please email Cody Fischer, High School Outreach Coordinator, at email@example.com or call the parish office at 605-332-5477.
Confirmation Classes (10th Grade)
The CTK parish Confirmation program is for ALL 10th grade students. We will meet for classes twice a month beginning prior to the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation and will continue meeting until May. Confirmation classes will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:40 to 8 PM. Class dates are listed below. Please mark these dates on your calendar and make every effort to attend all of these classes.
Attending a Confirmation retreat is absolutely necessary in order to be confirmed. We will offer a retreat at our parish to accomplish this (date is yet to be determined). Other acceptable retreat options include a SEARCH retreat in October and a Confirmation Retreat at Broom Tree (near Irene, SD).
Each student should also be praying and discerning who their Confirmation Sponsor and Patron Saint will be. These decisions should be made with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, through prayer and thought. CLICK HERE for guidelines on choosing a sponsor and patron saint.
