Middle School Youth Ministry (6th – 8th Grades)

Our middle school youth are discovering their gifts and talents – and how they can use these gifts and talents to serve God and their community! Thus, we encourage our middle school youth to join parish activities, train them to be leaders and give them space to reflect on how their actions connect to the Gospel.

For information on these programs or to find out how you can become involved, please contact:

In small group settings with adult catechists, our middle school youth reflect on the Scripture in age appropriate activities. Financial assistance is available to those who need it.

Contact John Knetzger, Associate Director of Child & Youth Ministry (jknetzger@stjosephgrafton.org / 262-375-6500 x 104) or the Christian Formation office (cfoffice@stjosephgrafton.org / 262-375-6500 x 120) to make arrangements. As we say, “ALL ARE WELCOME.”


Retreats are a wonderful way for our middle school youth to interact with their Catholic peers. High school youth and adult leaders facilitate activities in which the middle school youth can discover God’s love and learn about different Catholic rituals.

Middle school retreats will be advertised throughout the year.  More information and registration for these retreats will be sent out via email in the months beforehand.
