To continue developing teens’ knowledge and practice of the faith in harmony with their rapid progress toward adulthood, and to prepare teens for receiving the seal of the Holy Spirit at Confirmation.
We offer Confirmation Preparation sessions, High School Religious Education classes, and High School Youth Group in addition to a range of service opportunities here at the parish and in the larger community. Our teens know that they are gifted, valued, and necessary to our community.
“It was a joy and a blessing working with the newly Confirmed these past two years. I may have been blessed more than them!!:)” — Confirmation catechist and retreat chaperone 2017-2018

Confirmation Preparation is a two year process beginning as early as 9th Grade (Year 1) and ending with Confirmation as early as 10th Grade (Year 2). Confirmation Preparation sessions meet for 6 weeks each year; you choose whether to meet during the six Fall sessions or the six Spring sessions each year. We use the Chosen series from Ascension Press.
All sacraments, including Confirmation, require two years of faith formation.
***DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS SEPTEMBER 12, 2019*** for fall or spring ( Year 1 or 2).
Confirmation Sponsors: One way to grow closer to your candidate and open holy conversation is to take a road trip to one of the following pilgrimage destinations. Thank you for taking time to get to know your candidate and develop a relationship that they can rely on.
We incorporate service, spiritual growth, and fellowship into our youth group program. Teens fulfill the liturgical roles at a Sunday Mass (contact Juliana Weber for the schedule) and then meet for potluck lunch, games and small group discussions after Mass. Other events as announced. Join our Flocknotes group and stay in touch!
