Student Clubs and Student Service Organizations
Eucharistic Ministry allow students that have been Confirmed in their Catholic faith the opportunity of committing themselves to the ministry of the Eucharist. Students begin their ministry at school masses and then advance to parish masses upon graduation. This is an excellent way for many of our young adults to actively engage themselves in the service of Christ.
Students from grades 4-8 have the honor of assisting in the acolyte ministry. Once students are trained, they assist Fr. Gary at weekly masses, weddings, funerals, and other services. This is a wonderful way that many of our students live out their growing faith as they embrace Jesus’ ministry to serve others.
Students that have been given the gift of music have a wonderful opportunity to work with Mrs. Sandler and the Youth Choir. Students from 5th – 8th grade learn how to develop their talents in choral singing, cantering, and musical instrumentation. The Youth Choir sings at all of the school masses, with opportunities to join the Parish Choir on the weekends.
Young Rembrandts is an after school drawing class for students 6 – 12. The program provides all classroom materials. The lessons will teach how to transform shapes into clever character, develop color, and pattern theory. This program will stir adventure and creativity.
Science Matters is an exciting after school science enrichment program for K – 6th grade students. Each club focuses on a different topic and runs for five weeks. Our clubs combine fun and SCIENCE by incorporating teacher demonstrations and hands on activities in a FUN, science filled classroom. Each week, students also complete a take home project that reinforces the science concept being taught. Club topics include: Zany Zoology, Extreme Electricity, Radical Reaction Lab, Unsolved Science and Ancient Inventions.
6th-8th grade students participate in the KY Youth Assembly, this three day conference is a mock legislature where students act as senators and representatives. Students research topics pertinent to Kentucky, write bills, and present their ideas in front of their peers from all over the Commonwealth. The conference gives students an opportunity to learn how a bill becomes a law.
