Eighth Grade

Catechists:

This year we will be having two classes for our Eighth Graders.Our Catechists are Mr. & Mrs. Aaron and Tahnee Roers and Mr. Andrew Lang. We are very excited about this upcoming year.  This will be the first year for both the Roers and Mr. Lang at St. Timothy.  Aaron is currently involved with the Catechetical Institute and both him and his wife are very involved at St. Timothy and at St. Max in Delano.  They bring communion to the homebound, have an adoration hour, and send their eldest son to catholic school in Delano.

Andrew M. Lang has been a St. Henry’s parishioner since 2016. He and his wife Alyssa have five children and live in Maple Lake. He is the Headmaster of Holy Spirit Academy in Monticello, MN. He is originally from Maple Grove, MN. He obtained a B.A. in Liberal Arts at Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, CA. He obtained a M.A. in Philosophy with Honors from the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, CA. Mr. Lang fills his free time with his nose in a book, hunting and fishing, gardening, playing chess, tinkering on his vintage Mustang, and getting up to the family cabin in Crosslake. He is continuing formation as a secular discalced Carmelite.

A special thanks to Sean & Tammy Deringer for their work with 8th Grade Faith Formation over the past 3 years.  We look forward to when their schedule allows them to teach again.

Curriculum:

Christ our Life – The Mystery of the Church, the Marks of the Church, the history of the Church and the Witness of the Church.  We will be doing condensed versions of some chapters and that is because we have expanded Theology of the Body which is discovering God’s Plan for love and life.

 

A curriculum that helps young people understand the significance of their sexuality and the purpose of their lives.  Twelve lessons that explore Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and its positive portrayal of sexuality as a good and essential part of life and love.
