The Sacrament of Confirmation, as outlined by the Diocesan guidelines, is available for youth who choose to participate in the two-year preparation process. Its many components include large and small group sessions, retreats, liturgical celebrations and both parish and community service. The objective of this program is to prepare candidates to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation by helping them to come to "Know, Love and Live our Catholic Identity".
The program is designed so that busy families can still assure that their confirmation-age children still receive quality preparation for confirmation in the Christian Faith. We meet on Sundays at 11:30 for Youth Mass followed by Brunch and Classes two times a month. Detailed schedule of classes (See Current Schedule) can be downloaded from the website. Our First session begins on October 4, 2015. There will be a parent information meeting for our new Candidates on Sunday September 20th at 3:00 PM in the SPN Hall.
The Youth Minister Cathy Morales, the teaching staff and the Parish Priests are always available for any clarifications or further info you might need. Those who have completed two years of preparation will be asked to do a teens encounter retreat prior to their confirmation by the Bishop.
Candidates entering the eighth grade and above are welcome to join the program.
