Club Anvil forms 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in an atmosphere of freedom, friendship, and fun. In this crucial transition-age before high school, the boys develop their freedom to choose the good on their own initiative. They grow in friendship with boys who have similar values. They learn to have active rather than passive fun that is demanding, engaging, and creative. The club meets after school twice a month and includes time for reading, prayer, sports, dinner, and a virtue talk.
Occasional Saturday father-son movie nights or visits to the nearby nursing home and a yearly father-son camping trip round out the Anvil calendar.
It is becoming increasingly important for young people to receive good formation from a very young age in the area of human sexuality and human love. This sets the stage for young men or women to successfully integrate their sexuality into their life of virtue, and lay a strong foundation for safeguarding their long-term happiness in life. Such a task falls primarily to parents. It is often recommended that fathers talk to their sons and mothers to their daughters. However at times parents may find such a task difficult, and could benefit from encouragement, and good resources. The following articles are highly recommended to help parents in such a task:
