A year ago, we changed our approach to confirmation preparation, combining it with our regular Middle School Youth group meetings each Sunday, 4-5:30pm. Instead of offering a “class” we want to journey with the teens to become disciples of Jesus. Discipleship is much more than learning a bunch of facts about our faith and so each week we learn to pray better, learn to see God in our daily lives, learn something new about Jesus, and how to apply all of that to our lives. (And there is food, the odd game, puzzles, and a few surprises along the way.)
A teen wishing to be confirmed in the spring of 2022 needs to begin attending the youth group meetings now. We are meeting outside right now (either in the parish garden or near the school playground) to enjoy the summer weather (and help with covid issues).
Parents, there is required registration paperwork. Find it online or we’ll give you a copy to your teen at their first meeting.
