Confirmation Prep

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: 

Our preparation program for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a two year cycle. Each level meets about once a month for two hours, following the Sunday 5 pm Mass (6:15-8:15 pm) from September to April [Confirmation 1 (generally 9th grade), Confirmation 2 (generally 10th grade).]

The gatherings are a combination of small group discussions, speakers and activities focused on faith formation as the Candidates prepare to be recognized as full adult participants in the life of the Church.

Part of this preparation includes building a relationship with a Confirmation Sponsor, and occasional homework.

The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in the Spring (the date is determined by the Bishop). 

Please consult the electronic calendar for the most up-to-date schedule, or find the links below for the fall mailings (Welcome Letters).
