CONFIRMATION 1 & 2 FULLY ONLINE INDEPENDENT STUDY
Register here

This is a fully home-based option with an online program called Catholic Faith Delivered. It is dynamic and family friendly and we are able to track your progress. It will not be necessary for you to come in for assessments. Students will check in with the Youth Minister via ZOOM twice during the program year.

CONFIRMATION 1 HYBRID SMALL GROUP MODEL

This model is based on the LifeTeen Purpose Confirmation curriculum. Students will meet either in person or via ZOOM for small group discussions based on that sessions teaching topic. Our youth ministry team will record the teaching for each week and send it out on Monday. Students will be grouped into small groups and meet on either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Sunday evening every other week (alternating with Middle School). Our small group leaders will lead a lively discussion of the teaching and relevant scripture passages to help our students connect with and gain a deeper understanding of our faith.

CONFIRMATION 2 HYBRID SMALL GROUP MODEL

This model is based on the LifeTeen Purpose Confirmation curriculum. Students will meet either in person or via ZOOM for small group discussions based on that session’s teaching topic. Our youth ministry team will record the teaching for each week and send it out on Monday. Students will be grouped into small groups and meet on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday evening every other week (alternating with MiddleSchool). Our small group leaders along with the youth minister will lead a lively discussion of the teaching and relevant scripture passages to help our students connect with and gain a deeper understanding of our faith.

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.
