Sacrament of Confirmation: Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a two-year process. Over the course of two years, Confirmation Candidates work through the Spirit of Truth Curriculums which provide the foundation for well-rounded catechesis. The Sacrament of Confirmation may be celebrated when a candidate is in the eighth grade or older.
Junior high youth have an opportunity to pray together and discuss matters of the faith in Christ-centered small groups. Because of the important role the parish plays in preparing Candidates for this Sacrament, there is no online option for Sacramental Preparation.
This Spring at the townhall meeting with teens and parents, it was expressed that the youth WANT to help at events! We were so excited to hear this, as the younger kids really enjoy having the teens around!
We have an opportunity for you to volunteer at Cathletics VBS this year!
