Discipleship Program +

Contact, Cody Fischer

The Discipleship Program is a new initiative of Skutt Catholic that focuses on helping students grow in their relationship with God during high school. It has become apparent that many high schoolers lose their faith despite being surrounded by a Catholic atmosphere. Many students may have brief encounters with Jesus but then there is no one to follow up with them. We are hoping to bridge this gap through this program. Students are invited to become part of small groups that arise from their natural friend groups. They meet once a week with an adult small group leader and engage in bible studies or other types of faith sharing opportunities.
