By signing us with the gift of the Spirit, confirmation makes us more completely the image of the Lord and fills us with the Holy Spirit, so that we may bear witness to him before all the world and work to bring the Body of Christ to its fullness as soon as possible. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, 2)
The teen Confirmation program spans two years: usually Ninth and Tenth grades.
Year One is a youth Bible Study, entitled T3. This is a highly engaging DV video series with interactive workbook materials. The program is packed with relevant insights for our teens surrounded by a culture of relativism and desperately in need of God’s truth.
Year Two introduces the students to Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation. The students are prepared both intellectually and spiritually to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation and to become lifelong disciples of Christ. The methodology features highly effective and engaging material conveyed through videos, student workbooks, and classroom experience with guides for parents and sponsors.
In addition, candidates are expected to complete at least 20 hours of service to the church and/or community. Details on this requirement can be found below.
