THE KEYSIS MISSION STATEMENT
KeYsis strengthens and encourages the youth of the St. Francis Community and their families by empowering them to live as Disciples of Jesus Christ, drawing them into participation in the faith community, and fostering their personal and spiritual growth. KeYsis is comprehensive in scope to meet the various needs of the youth community.
What does all this mean?
KeYsis combines the fun and energy of a youth group with the teaching and formation of Religious Education. Mix in some music, food, drama, retreats, liturgies, trips, leadership training, socials, and service projects. Wrap it in prayer and you have a dynamic youth process that leads young people to deepen their love for Christ and His Church.
Who Can Come?
KeYsis is open to all students of high school age; Confirmed or not-Confirmed, Catholic or non-Catholic, rich or poor, cool or not-so-cool. This is NOT a club. It is a community where ALL are loved as they are and called to grow in their faith in Jesus.
What is taught?
Each year, we will focus on one of the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Special Topics, Teen Issues, and Current Events are also covered. Text Needed: Holy Bible. KeYsis has Bibles on hand for those who don’t own one of their own.
When and Where?
KeYsis meetings are on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the San Damiano Center. We begin each class with a meal, so come hungry!
