Faith Formation

Faith formation is a lifelong process of forming and growing in faith. It is an active engagement through prayer, participation in the sacraments, the liturgy, parish life, social commitments, works of charity, and the promotion of human values.

High School Grades 9-12

Our High school program focuses on preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This preparation involves a two-year process that can begin as early as the 9th grade. Confirmation preparation uses the Ascension Chosen curriculum. Chosen takes young people on a journey through the entire Catholic faith in all its richness and vitality. Teens will be captivated by the story, from Creation all the way through salvation history. They will come to see how the sacraments, prayer, and discipleship are the keys to a happy life. The goal of this 24-lesson program is nothing short of winning over the hearts of teens and making them disciples of Christ.


Students in year 1 Confirmation cover the first 12 lessons along with participating in 10 service hours to the community, attending our parish youth group, Sanctuary, at least 5 times, and attend a one-day retreat held at Risen Savior, as well as hear guest speakers share about our faith. This program can be started in grades 9-11.


Students in Year 2 Confirmation cover the last 12 lessons of the Chosen curriculum along with participating in 20 hours of community service, attending our parish youth group, Sanctuary, at least 5 times, and attend a weekend retreat held at Camp Courage. They also hear guest speakers share about our faith. This program can be started in grades 10-12 after the completion of Year 1 Confirmation.
