High School Confirmation

The High School Confirmation program is available for youth in grades 9-12.

In preparation for the 2020/21 formation year, we intend to offer as many of the events and opportunities that our youth have come to know and love, while making necessary adjustments to appropriately respond to the on-going global pandemic.  We are confident that we can effectively provide quality ministry events while simultaneously keeping our community healthy.  Some measures we will be taking to make this possible will include wearing masks, social distancing, enhanced cleaning regimen, and continued transparency with parents and families.

What is Confirmation?

Each and every young person has been chosen for greatness from the very beginning of time! Join us on the adventure toward the Sacrament of Confirmation and unlock the plan that God has for your life. The Confirmation program prepares teens to thrive as Catholic adults and find success in the mission of the Church.

Year 2 Virtual Retreat Option

Participate in a Greater Virtual Retreat by signing up with the link here: greaterretreat.com/s/a49675bb/39000370

Greater Retreat is an entirely virtual retreat that can be completed over the course of two days or four weeks.  Both Retreat provide the same content, it is just up to students if they want to complete the full experience over the course of two days, or would prefer to break it up into 90 minute chunks throughout 4 weeks.  Retreat access costs $19 for 45 days access (which should be more than enough time to complete your retreat).

Parent resources are also available to help your teen get the most out of their retreat experience, this includes discussion starters, journal prompts and reflection questions for you and your teen to complete together.  Parent Resource Packet available here
