Middle School Ministry

San Rafael’s Middle School Youth Ministry works to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

This ministry strives to provide new opportunities and experiences for middle school youth that will draw them to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic Church.

Middle School has open enrollment throughout the year (except for Sacramental Prep Students, please register by the 3rd Sunday of September).

Online enrollment is now open for all new and returning students for the 2017-2018 school year.  Begin the online registration process by first creating an account through the “My Own Church” icon above.  Please see the online registration  tutorial below:
