Description 
Our Confirmation Program is a two-year faith formation journey. Throughout the two years, students are given opportunities to engage in meaningful discussions about their faith and encounter Jesus in one another and through special events such as Adoration and guest speaker events. Our prayer is that by the time they receive the sacrament of Confirmation students will come to know God, love God, and serve God. 

This year there will be a few changes to our program in order to create a safe environment for our students and community. 

Curriculum
Students will continue to use the “Chosen” program via Ascension Press’ online platform. Catechists will be assigned to groups of students in order to encourage students in their learning, monitor their progress, and answer questions. 

Students will also be placed in a Google Classroom where they will turn in weekly Mass reflections and answer review questions for their “Chosen” lessons. 

Service Hours
This year we will not be requiring service hours. We hope that our students will continue to love and serve those around them. 

Mass Attendance 
Attending weekly Mass is an obligation for all Catholics. We will not be doing the “Journey to Jesus” stamp cards (10th Grade) this year. However, all 9th and 10th grade students are expected to attend Mass in-person or virtually every week. They will reflect on their experience by completing the Mass reflections posted on their Google Classroom. 

Guest Speakers & Special Events 
All 9th and 10th grade students (including 9th grade Catholic school students and RCIA teens) are required to attend the once per month special events. All special events will be held in the Parish Center gym this year and will follow social distancing guidelines. 

Retreats 
Retreats have become one of our favorite parts of the Confirmation journey. Due to the pandemic, we will not be able to hold our usual retreats. We will offer optional in-person small group events to give students an opportunity to discuss their faith in a more meaningful way. 

For additional information about our program and this year’s calendar of events, please see the curriculum/calendar document.
