Our goal is giving each teen an experience of the Holy Spirit through formation, parish life, and service. This is a two year process with teens typically beginning in their freshman year. Teens participate with our High School Youth Group throughout Year 1, and in Year 2 begin their specified Sacramental formation. All teens are required to complete each requirement in order to be Confirmed at the end of Year 2. By the end of preparation to receive Confirmation we hope that our teens are prepared to receive the graces given, as well as participate as fully initiated Catholics in the life of the Church.
The journey towards Confirmation is just beginning, and we couldn't be more excited for what's to come! This first year is all about welcoming our teens well and fostering a community with them and their fellow teens preparing for Confirmation. Formation takes off, initial paperwork is turned in, and actively taking part in parish life begins.
After completing Year 1 of preparation our teens enter the bulk of their journey towards Confirmation. In Year 2 our teens are challenged to enter into the teachings of the Church, as well as the Sacrament of Confirmation itself, during Confirmation Nights. Through prayer and continued formation our teens complete their preparations and receive the graces given in Confirmation.
To make-up a Confirmation Night absence you will need to listen to the recording and complete the outline provided below, and send it to Lisa Lyons at email@example.com.
