Confirmation

Updated September 7th, 2021

Welcome! The Confirmation team and I are looking forward to sharing this journey of faith with you and your family. We are very excited that you have chosen to receive this sacrament.  We are all praying for you and we all hope this year will be a time of great spiritual growth.

This year we are excited to be returning to the classroom where we can learn, share, serve and grow spiritually together in-person.

During this journey, you will be given the opportunity to learn more about your Catholic faith and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “Preparing for Confirmation should lead the Christian (you) toward a friendship and union with Christ and the Holy Spirit.”  So get ready for a wonderful journey. 

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me or any of the catechist.

Orientation

Our parent orientation was scheduled for Sunday, September 12th at 7:00pm in the teen center, but because of Covid and the Diocesan policy to keep gatherings small we have decided to offer the parent orientation online only. This does not affect our in person learning for the students.  Students will still gather in person at the scheduled dates and times since we are able to offer the reduced class sizes and practice our new safety measures. Thank you for your understanding.

First Class

Our first Confirmation classes are scheduled for either Monday, September 20th or Tuesday, September 21st depending on the day you signed up. These classes are scheduled for in person sessions starting at 7:00pm and will end at 8:30pm. Due to the current Covid protocols all students must wear a mask and sanitize before participating. If you student is feeling sick, please have them stay home. We will not be offering an online learning option this year, but will have online lessons available upon request for students who miss a class and would like to make it up.
