Any high school student (entering Grade 9 or above) interested in receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. It is a two-year preparation program. Classes will be offered bi-weekly beginning September 25, 2016 from 6pm-7:30pm. Adult presenters, along with high school peer ministers who have been Confirmed will help facilitate small group discussions. All Year I and Year II candidates must register for class.
Any student who attends a Catholic high school in 9th grade-only will still register for the Confirmation retreat, parent meetings, and service opportunities. They may attend weekly classes, if they wish, although their class requirement is fulfilled by their high school theology classes. Tenth grade students and all public high school students are required to register for and attend weekly classes
Our Year I and Year II Confirmation students are truly blessed with the opportunity to utilize the new program CHOSEN- Your Journey Toward Confirmation. This incredibly dynamic approach to sharing our faith prepares our students spiritually and intellectually to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation and to encourage them to become lifelong Disciples of Christ. This new program along with others we are using at St. Mary’s and Blessed Sacrament are geared toward winning the hearts of our teens at a critical time in their life and keeping them firmly planted within the faith community of our Church.
Confirmation I and II Classes will meet bi-weekly beginning on September 25th and 26th for Confirmation II(10th grade). Confirmation I Classes (9th grade) will begin October 2nd and 3rd. Students will attend approximately 9 classes throughout the year in preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. See the link below for the full schedule:
