Teen Ministry- Guardians of our Faith (G.O.O.F.)

 Teen Faith Formation & Fun

In addition to Confirmation preparation for 9th and 10th graders, our parish invites teens to experience our faith through good works, worship and fun community activities. Our goal is to help them understand how God offers strength, comfort and love in as they finish high school and continue their faith journeys as adults.

Our Teen Faith Coordinator

Richard Grayson, PhD., leads our parish team to offer vibrant faith-based, service-oriented and prayerful experiences to our Teens. He leads our Confirmation prep program as well as our Teen Ministry. He is married to Paula, father to twins and a neuropsychologist with his own practice in Southbury.

As a student in the Archdiocesan Catholic Biblical School and a member of the Knights of Columbus, he is on fire with our faith and wants to pass that along to our young people. “Teens have a fresh, unique perspective to bring to our faith. I hope to help them explore it and build a deeper relationship with God,” he said.
