OneWith is SJTW's innovative liturgy and Scripture centered curriculum. Using the Mass as our model, youth in grades 9-11 participate in and learn about Catholic worship from the inside out! 

Our Vision

For most Catholics, the Sunday Mass is the primary way we practice our faith.  But how much do we really understand about this ancient and highly symbolic form of worship?

At OneWith we systematically unpack the histories and mysteries of the Mass to reveal the beauty, wisdom and grace of this powerful Sacrament.

What We Do

OneWith uses a "Teaching Mass" format to explain Catholic symbolism and tradition. 

  • Youth are mentored and participate in a wide variety of liturgical ministries.

  • Youth engage in theological reflection and practical application of Sacred Scripture and Catholic doctrine. 

  • Youth are mentored (1-on-1 & Discipleship Groups) in fundamental practices of Christian discipleship.

All Are Welcome

This concept was was not designed just for teens alone.  Adults and families are invited to participate in this unique format. The OneWith formation team has developed reflection materials specifically for groups of adults and families to reflect on the gospel in a deeper more intentional way.

OneWith Teaching Masses are offered October-April (about twice per month).
