Youth Ministry helps middle and high-school students deepen their relationship with God and experience their faith, while being integrated into the parish family and larger community. Confirmation preparation happens as a part of Youth Ministry - as well as so much more! Youth Ministry includes Sunday classes, mini-courses, summer mission trips, retreats, social action and service opportunities, a small Christian community, as well as additional events to build community and enjoy life in faith together.
We offer students the opportunity to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation throughout grades 9-12 knowing that not everyone is ready to receive the Sacrament at the same time.
If you have already begun your preparation, you can log into Confirmation preparation tracking to check your progress.
About our program:
- During their Freshman year of preparation, students attend Bagels and Basics, which covers a different topic each session and gives teens a common understanding of their mutual faith. Freshmen also attend Reconciliation, a retreat and participate in 10 hours of community service.
- When they are ready, students then choose three mini courses, attend an overnight retreat, attend 'Pizza & Theology' sessions, and give back with 20 hours of community service.
- In a final time of preparation for Confirmation, students attend a preparation retreat, a Confirmation rehearsal, Reconciliation, and a ToGether in Faith session for students and sponsors.
