JAM (Jesus and Me) is the middle school religious education program at St. Benedict. By sharing the teachings of the Catholic Church and discussing moral issues, our youth grow in relationship with one another and with Jesus Christ.

JAM (for 6th-8th graders) will meet two to three times each month virtually, and once in-person for a night of praise and worship.

Religious Education Registration for 2020-2021

Registration for all RE programs at St. Benedict will open online via our website on August 1. Although sessions may look different this year, we have worked hard to develop creative ways to continue quality faith formation for children and teens in our parish. We realize that new ways of learning, gathering, and praying may be difficult to embrace, but we trust that the Holy Spirit will continue to guide our hearts and minds.

Spring 2021 Schedule

*Current plan is for JAM to meet virtually in January/February with potential for in-person gatherings in March/April.
