The Confirmation Program is a 2 ½ -year preparation for students in Grades 8, 9 and 10 (but open to all high school-aged students), for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation and the completion of their full initiation into membership in the Church which was begun at their Baptism and First Communion.
Classes will be held once each month at 5:00 PM for both Confirmation 1 (grade 8) and Confirmation 2 (grade 9) groups and will conclude with a monthly “Teen Mass” to be held at 6:30 PM on the evening of the class.
Those in Confirmation 3 (grade 10), who are about to make their Confirmation in October, will attend a Sponsor Meeting in September and a group Retreat Day at the Parish Center.
ATTENDANCE: Students are expected to attend all sessions and weekly Sunday Mass (with sign-in book). Because we meet only once each month, there will be no excused absences except for a family emergency or a serious illness. At the Open House candidates and parents will receive full information on requirements for “service time”, class format and participation, etc.
MONTHLY TEEN MASS: This has been the most well received change in our program this past year and we will continue to include in the program. Parents and families are asked to join our candidates in these monthly Eucharistic Celebrations which will be prepared by the students who will also participate fully in the music, ushering, serving and all other aspects of the Mass. This Mass will fulfill their Sunday Mass obligation.
