Junior High


JR G.TOWN
6th - 8th Grade Youth Group

What is JR G.Town?

JR G.Town, the Junior High Youth Group, is a ministry of fun, Catholic activiites for 6th - 8th grade teens. We meet once at month and like to use in-house service projects, special events, and trips to give our junior high teens a fun and safe place to make new friends and feel a part of the larger parish. Junior high events are characterized by enthuiastic icebreaker games, innovative presentations, and strong focus on the teens as individuals.  Please see the schedule for upcoming events.

Who can participate? How do we sign up?

St. George parishioners in the 6th - 8th grades are automatically registered, even if they don't attend St. George School.

Most meetings do not require a sign-up sheet or preregistration of any kind; they are open events. Occasionally a special event, such as the food drive or lock-in, will require teens to register in advance. Those flyers are distributed by email and also hosted on this website.

What kind of events and activites are available?

We have a wide and varied calendar in order to appeal to every junior high teen in our parish. Some of our regular events include:

  • Kickoff event
  • Food Drive Scavenger Hunts benefitting the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank
  • Lock-in featuring inflatables, dodge ball tournament, cotton candy, BINGO, service project, trivia challenge, and dance party
  • Living Stations of the Cross featuring 7th and 8th grade teens as actors, musicians, and readers
  • End of the year party

EDGE
7th - 8th Grade Parish School of Religion

What is Parish School of Religion (PSR)?

Junior high 7th & 8th grade students who are not enrolled in a school with a daily, Catholic religion class are invited to enroll in EDGE, the Junior High PSR program! Like High School PSR, Junior High PSR helps parents prepare their teens for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This ongoing formation is important because it gives the teens a foundation for faith during some of the most challenging years of their life.

What is Edge?

Junior High PSR utilizes Life Teen's EDGE program to connect our junior high teens with their Catholic heritage. Similar to Life Teen and high shool youth group, you can expect icebreaker games, videos, small groups, presentations, skits, and other elements in their meeting plans.

How do we enroll?

Families must register their children in the PSR Program in order to attend classes. Please complete the PSR Registration form (see sidebar) and submit it electronically. The fee for PSR registration is $45 per child, not to exceed $75 per family.

When do we meet?

EDGE is hosted on Sunday evenings from 7:15 – 8:30 p.m. in the Kleinpeter Activity Center (KAC).  These classes begin in August with a parent-only session in the KAC.  The first Edge meeting will be held following the week.
