Confirmation is the third sacrament of initiation as it helps to strengthen the faith begun at Baptism. This sacrament is another step in the life-long process of journeying with one another towards God. Through-out a 12 month discernment process, Candidates will explore the mission of Jesus, his life, and how they can bring his love to our community and the world as a whole.The sacrament of Confirmation is offered yearly to teens in 9th and 10th grade. The gifts of the Holy Spirit which you received at Baptism will be strengthened in you and you will be commissioned to live out your faith more intentionally in your family, school, community and world.
The program uses an online component in conjuncture with St. Mary’s Press and meets monthly starting in December of their 9th grade year, goes through May, breaks for the summer months, and resumes in September of their 10th grade year, concluding with the sacramental celebration in November.Confirmation Candidates are also required to complete 3 Service Experiences throughout the Confirmation process. Hours are not tracked, but rather we hope that the students engage in 3 different types of service activities: 1 on a parish level, 1 on a local level, and one on a National/Global level. More information on this will be discussed during the initial sessions.
