Confirmation Preparation for Teens
Confirmation preparation is a two-year program beginning in 8th grade, with the Sacrament of Confirmation celebrated in the spring of 9th grade.
Encounter Confirmation 1 (C1) is for 8th graders and is focused on the encounter with Christ and how to sustain the relationship. The first half of the year is the Encounter – we accomplish this through lived experiences of the presence of Christ through retreat opportunities and events. The second half of the year is spent learning how to sustain that encounter through a life of prayer and sacramental living. There is no formal session time for this year of preparation. Dates of events and activities will be given out at the fall orientation.
Light the Fire Confirmation 2 (C2) is for 9th graders and is focused on New Life in Christ through the Holy Spirit. We work on developing a spirit of generosity and a sense of mission. Confirmation 2 meets as part of senior high ministry on Sunday nights from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.
