Download Confirmation Schedule 2019-2020

• Life Night – A dynamic and engaging approach to Catholic education aimed at helping develop a sense of community in the youth of our church. Utilizing games, testimonies, teaching, and worship music we hope to help broaden the experience of prayer for our youth while leading them to a deeper understanding of the sacraments. Life Nights are open to all high school students.
• Ignite – Building on our Life Nights, Ignite is an opportunity to engage more deeply with the teachings of the Church in a interactive lesson format. An integration of bible study, reflection, discussion, and a healthy sprinkling of Q&A, Ignite is for those individuals who want to kick start their journey as fully formed Catholics.
Additional events will be added to the schedule as the year progresses. Our hope is to offer enough options that every student can build a program that not only fits their schedule but also their personal style.

During our two year Confirmation preparation, our focus is to
1) engage and empower the “first teachers” of the Faith – the parents – and
2) engage the Confirmation candidates in a welcoming and community-minded way.
We do the former by encouraging parents to complete the assigned Decision Point sessions (done at home) with their children, which fosters healthy, meaningful, deep and spiritual discussion within the family. We do the latter by creating welcoming environments, often facilitated by our high school leadership team, during each on campus session. We want all candidates to learn more about the Faith – sure! However, we want them to experience living in a community of Catholics, building authentic friendships, growing in faith together and experiencing Christ in each other.  That’s what being Catholic is all about!

Why do I need to be confirmed?

Confirmation, a sacrament of initiation, establishes young adults as full-fledged members of the faith. This sacrament is called Confirmation because the faith given in Baptism is now confirmed and made strong. During your Baptism, your parents and godparents make promises to renounce Satan and believe in God and the Church on your behalf. At Confirmation, you renew those same promises, this time, speaking for yourself.
