Proclaiming Christ and Making Disciples

Confirmation

Confirmation

The sacrament of Confirmation completes the grace of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism & First Holy Communion) by a special outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seal or “confirm” the baptized in union with Christ and equip them for full, active participation in the worship of the Church.  

 Our parish confirmation two-year program begins in 9th grade.  For more information contact our Director of Faith Formation.

 

 The Sacrament of Confirmation in 2019 will be celebrated at 7:00pm on Monday, May 13 at the Cathedral of St. Paul.
 

 

Adults Who Have Not Received Confirmation

Catholic adults over the age of 18 who have never received the Sacrament of Confirmation should contact the parish office at 651-489-8825.

 

Class Schedule

The class schedule for 9th & 10th graders begins in late September and runs on Wednesday nights regularly throughout the year from 7:45-9 pm. See the 2018-2019 Schedule below.

Curriculum

Our curriculum centered around a speaker based approach to presenting relevant topics to the Youth. Includes small groups to dive deeper into the topics surrounding Confirmation.

 

Preparing Youth for Confirmation

The sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation together constitute the sacraments of Christian initiation. Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiations, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds. 

  • Parents, sponsors, and candidates are expected to participate in several Confirmation preparation sessions during 9th and 10th grade.

  •  Tenth grade candidates are expected to attend a retreat in the winter before their confirmation.
  • Candidates are expected to complete 10 service hours each year. Youth group service activities count!

 

Volunteer as a Small Group Leader

Volunteers are needed to be small group table leaders. Table groups consist of five or six teens and one or two table leaders during Wednesday evening classes.

Training is provided. 11th and 12th graders are encouraged to stay with the program as small group leaders. For more information, or if you would like to sign up to be a table leader, contact the Director of Faith Formation.
