Confirmation Preparation (Year 1 & 2)
Confirmation Preparation is a 2-year faith formation experience for students, beginning as early as 8th grade, to prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Our goal is to help teens grow in their personal faith as well as understanding of and connection to the Catholic church.
Sessions - October through April (See our calendar below for dates)
- Confirmation Year 1 (Grade 8+) - Mondays at 6 p.m. (See Religious Education)
- Confirmation Year 2 (Grade 9+) - Sunday mornings or Sunday evenings
Community Service - Through community service we encourage teens to adopt a lifestyle of faithful service to others as disciples of Jesus. Twenty-five hours of meaningful community service is expected during both years (Year 1 & 2). Up to half of the hours can be earned during the summer.
- Service Opportunities (Google Sheet)
Retreat - Retreats are a time set aside for prayer and reflection to help confirmation candidates focus on their own spiritual life. Teens have consistently reported the confirmation retreat (Year 2) to be the highlight of their year, standing out as major turning points in their faith.
