“Even though you are young, the time for action is now! It is time to let your light shine! Remember, Christ is calling you; the Church needs you!”  ~Pope John Paul II



Classes are offered for 7th & 8th Grade students on Sunday at 10:15 am in the Parish Activity Center (PAC). Registration takes place during the month of August. Classes begin in September on the first Sunday after Labor Day.   Meetings are structured in the Youth Ministry learning model so that the students are challenged spiritually, intellectually, and kinesthetically. These classes also prepare the students for the sacrament of Confirmation, which is a two-year program at St. Michael.  Students are confirmed in the fall of 9th grade. 

There are retreats throughout the year for these students.   This is one of the many ways we help to encourage our young people on their faith journey through Confirmation and beyond.

Along with weekly meetings, members are expected to participate in the ministries at the 5 PM  Mass on Sundays.   Contact the parish Director of Religious Education at or call the office - 843-651-3737, ext. 227,  for more details.



Mass is celebrated at Coastal Carolina University in Conway every Sunday evening at 8 pm. 

Join Fr. David Nerbun beforehand at 5 pm for dinner and discussion.
