Youth Formation

The Youth Formation program at Gesu Parish provides faith formation and a better sense of faith community to teenagers in grades 9-12. These goals are accomplished through curricular guidelines established by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. In addition, teens in this program along with family members participate in a variety of liturgical, prayer and service opportunities that promote nurturing relationships between God, family and the community at large.
