Confirmation Preparation

Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a two-phase program. This program is for public school as well as Catholic school students.

Phase I begins in 8th grade and is for both parents and their young adult.  Phase I consists of 8 sessions (the first session is a retreat format) and meets one Sunday a month from 2:00 – 3:30pm.  These sessions are facilitated each month by a different speaker helping the student build and nurture a relationship with Jesus through prayer, meditation, the sacraments, reflecting on scripture and service in the community.

Phase II begins in 9th grade and is for those who have completed the Phase I program.  Phase II is in session from September through December and consists of 8 sessions (one being a retreat).  Students come together to meet in prayer, open the word of God and learn how to apply the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in their lives.  All 9th grade students work together on a common service project and must attend two youth group meetings. The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated in the winter of 9th grade.
