As the Sacrament that completes our Baptism, Confirmation and the associated catechetical program encourages faith development and maturation through study, service and prayer. The two-year program challenges our youth to deepen their faith and embrace the mission of service to others in need.  Adult mentors and volunteers offer meaningful support and catechesis to promote the religious development of our young adults.

The program is designed as a two-year commitment which begins in the fall of ninth grade and is usually completed by the spring of tenth grade. (Individuals enrolled in a Catholic school may be exempt from attending the first year.) The program utilizes videos and lessons from the Dynamic Catholic curriculum.  Classes meet (online) as scheduled (usually once a month).

We also encourage participation in our Youth Ministry program. The focus of this program is to help give our young people a lived connection to Christ Jesus and the community of the Church, and help them to grow in faith as young adults.  Youth Ministry also offers service opportunities within and outside our Collaborative, as well as social and recreational activities, to help our young people strengthen their connections to each other and to their community.

For more details on the program and specific requirements, please see the Confirmation Details and Requirements page.

(A printable version of the Confirmation Details and Requirements as well as printable versions of the Confirmation Calendar, Youth Ministry Calendar and other important documents can be accessed from the Confirmation Menu.)
