Preparation for Confirmation is a two-year process that begins when an individual feels that she or he is ready to learn what it means to live as a fully initiated member of the Church community. Students are welcome to begin the process as early as grade 9. All students in grades 9-11 who wish to prepare for Confirmation must begin with Confirmation Year One and complete BOTH years of preparation. Your schedule for the two-year process will include small group class sessions as well as occasional large group gatherings for the candidates and sponsors. In addition, all Confirmation students are required to engage in community service, liturgical ministry, attend Sanctuary, and a retreats (Dates TBA). Participation in a Confirmation Retreat is required in both Confirmation Year One and Confirmation Year Two. Details will be available at the Orientation. Classes are held on Sundays from 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Beginning this year, we will be using Loyola Press’ “Called to be Catholic” in year 1 Confirmation. This is a wonderful overview for everyone, no matter where they are in their faith journey. It prepares each student for the second year of Confirmation where starting in 2020-2021 they will be using Loyola Press’ “Confirmed in the Spirit.”
Current Year 2 students will finish with the Chosen program that they began with this year.
