Confirmation is an important milestone in the sacramental and spiritual life of a Catholic. It allows young people to learn more deeply about their Catholic faith, focused on our beliefs, morals and practices. The journey guides them through a mature examination of this faith, hoping to help them make a willful and intentional commitment to live and serve in the Spirit of Christ. Many of us were baptized as babies, our parents and godparents choosing to raise us in the Catholic tradition. At Confirmation, we say YES to our baptism, YES to living a call to discipleship and YES to following the example and teachings of Jesus Christ.
There are several components to a complete and successful Confirmation program. The archdiocese mandates a retreat, liturgical worship, sponsor involvement, community service, an interview and a letter of intent. All of these are meant to enhance the preparation process and a young person’s capacity to say YES. These components will be explained at the orientation session. Please plan to attend this important session with your young person. There are two options for attending the orientation this year. Parents must attend either session if they hope to register their 11th or 12th grader for the confirmation program: Sunday August 21st following the 10:30am mass or Monday, August 22nd at 6pm- both sessions will meet in the Adult Formation Room.
This year our group will meet on Sunday mornings, 9am-10:20am.
Regular attendance, as well as participation, in mass and during our catechetical sessions
are required for successful completion of this sacramental preparation.
