High School Youth Ministry

It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness;
He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you.
- St. John Paull II

Welcome to High School Youth Ministry! Here at St. Joseph Parish we have a comprehensive youth ministry program where all high school youth can find a place for faith, friends and fun. Below you find links to many of the programs that we have.

For further information on these programs or to find out how you can become involved, please contact Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry at kkranich@stjosephgrafton.org / (262) 375-6500 Ext. 107

2023-2024 Child & Youth CF Registration

2023-24 CF schedule coming soon!

Our 9th and 10th grade Christian Formation small groups meet on Sunday nights.   HS youth may join KC in our bimonthly disciple group where we read books, watch videos, and serve together. Please check the calendar for our next scheduled session.



2023-24 Confirmation forms & calendar coming soon!

For teens planning to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation during their Junior Year, a preparation program is incorporated into the 11th Grade Youth Ministry Sessions. 11th grade sessions will be scheduled according to small group availability.  In addition to the ongoing sessions, service and reflection on Scripture, Confirmation Candidates participate in a retreat, a candidate & sponsor session, and additional components in preparation for Confirmation. Please look for a letter informing you about the first meeting for parents and youth.

St. Joseph’s annual workcamp mission trip is an opportunity for youth and young adults to gather and serve communities across this country. Each year approx. 70 people will travel and partake in service to those in need through home repair projects, prayer and building relationships with the resident they are serving. The group will also participate in activities back at camp such as 9-square, ultimate Frisbee tournaments, soccer, drama and music, or hanging out with friends. All High School youth (8th grade – 12th grade) and young adults (18-24) are encouraged to join us in this life changing experience.

 Workcamp Mission Trip
We will be serving the community of Montague, Michigan.

To complement this hard working group of teens we have an amazing group of adults that sustain this program throughout the year. Our Prep Team is a dedicated group that meets monthly to design activities for the youth, plan our fundraisers and work out the logistics of the trip itself. We have another group of adults that travels with youth.

If you are interested in serving as an adult leader, contact KC Kranich kkranich@stjosephgrafton.org / (262) 375-6500 Ext. 107  for more information.

High School Retreats

Retreats are an important part of our faith development. To that end, all high school youth are invited to attend at least one retreat a year.

Retreats will be advertised throughout the year.

The Archdiocese requires all Confirmation candidates to attend a Confirmation retreat.  Retreats will be advertised when they are scheduled.
