Confirmation is offered to students who are in 9th grade or above. Meetings take place in St. A’s hall Monday evenings from 7-8:30 pm.
Confirmation is an important step in our journey as Catholics. Confirmation is the final step in Christian initiation completing in us what the sacrament of Baptism begins. It makes us full members of the church and at our confirmation, we receive the same outpouring of the Holy Spirit as the Apostles at Pentecost!
Confirmation is an important and sacred step in our Catholic journey. For that reason, we require students to attend a year of preparation meetings so they may understand what Confirmation is and why it is important for them to receive it.
Along with attending meetings, we will have a full day Confirmation retreat in the spring taking place on a Saturday to be determined. This retreat day gives us the opportunity to go deeper into prayer and truly ready ourselves as our day of Confirmation grows near.
The best way to prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation is to receive Jesus in the Eucharist and hear the word of God at mass each Sunday with family and community. We ask that all students attend weekly mass with their families.
Service teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves as Jesus told us to do. Confirmation students will be offered opportunities to serve at mass as a lector, as ushers and greeters, or in other roles. We will also find ways to serve our community and offer service hours students may participate in
There is a fee of $35 to register for this class. The maximum fee for a family of 3 students or more is $75. There is also a $45 robe rental fee when it comes time for Confirmation in the spring. Please don’t let money be a hindrance to receiving the sacrament. Let us know and we will work with you should finances be an issue.
We use a program called “Chosen” which includes videos and questions meant to inform and inspire the students in order to prepare them to receive the sacrament of Confirmation.
Please feel free to contact Nate Schaff if you have any questions.
