AMP stands for “all my people,” an acronym chosen by the middle school students to represent their community of fellowship. Our goal is to grow the faith of our students, instill a sense of ownership of their faith, and provide a safe platform for students to examine and evaluate their beliefs. Students meet Jesus through scripture, faith sharing, and prayer. The program includes a youth group, social events and service projects.
The program includes the following:
Weekly meetings occur every Tuesday from 7:30-8:45 pm in St. Augustine Hall. These sessions combine large and small group activities. Middle schoolers spend half of the evening in small group and the other half in a large group setting.
Small groups are grade specific and remain together for the entire year. Our goal is to encourage open dialogue and deepening friendships within the small group. Each group is facilitated by adults working with 10-20 middle schoolers. Small groups read scripture, pray, and talk about their faith journeys.
In the large group setting, the middle schoolers continue to learn about the theme of the night. They do so through guided discussion and activities.
AMP hosts “Supper Club,” a social event following the 5:00 p.m. mass at St. Augustine. AMP also sponsors various social outings and service projects through the year.
