Catholic Leadership Formation for Students

Raising up leaders to change the world!

You don't have to know a lot of things for your life to make a lasting difference in the world. You just have to know a few unchanging, simple, and glorious things, and be set on fire by them.

Drawing upon the best of Catholic truth, Scripture, the lives of saints, and leadership development, we will raise up leaders to change the world.

EQUIP prepares the next generation for more than a career path. We believe excellence extends beyond classes and curriculum to also develop character, creativity and genuine community.

Is High School Youth Group still happening on Sunday evenings?

No. This is the latest evolution of high school youth group at St. Catharine. This is not a canned program, but a course that has been specifically developed at St. Catharine, for St. Catharine students. Plus you still have to do that homework you've been putting off all weekend.

*Middle School Youth Group (for 6th-8th) will still take place on 2nd Saturdays 6:00pm-8:00pm.

How is this different than religion class or PSR?

Equip is focused not on just a transfer of information, but personal transformation. There are no tests and there is no regurgitation of information. The fruit will come be in a life well-lived.
