Confirmation Prep

Confirmation Update 2019-2020

For students preparing to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in Spring 2020, the date has been rescheduled for Sunday, September 27 at 3 p.m. More event details coming soon.


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

  • Confirmation Year 1 (Grade 8+) - Mondays at 4 p.m. or 6 p.m.
  • Confirmation Year 2 (Grade 9+) - Sunday mornings or Sunday evenings
    • Sunday mornings - 9 a.m. Mass and Small Group Session
    • Sunday evenings - 6:30 p.m. Virtual Session

Registration

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.

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 a major turning point in their faith.
