Middle School/High School Faith Formation:
Wednesdays, (7:00pm - 8:00pm)
Faith Formation does not end after Confirmation. In middle school and high school, we will build on the foundational knowledge your children bring with them to middle school formation. Our goal is to encourage our young people to live out the faith by incorporating and applying their knowledge to their everyday experiences.
We have one retreat in the Fall that must be attended.
Fall Retreat: Sunday, October 23rd @ McCoy Farm. (10:00 a.m. - 2:00pm).
We will kick off our program and do team building activities. This retreat gives us the opportunity to get to know your child and for them to form friendships with others.
Candidates will create a simple display about their chosen saint and present it at a "saint museum" for the K-5 Religious education classes. This project gives candidates an opportunity to research their chosen saint and experience faith sharing as they interact with the K-5 children.
Our goal is to expose children to a variety of spiritual practices to help them find something that helps them connect to God. Candidates are encouraged to participate in a faith experience that is new to them (examples would be: praying a family rosary, attending daily Mass, visiting the National Memorial for the Unborn etc.).
Each candidate will write a letter to the Bishop. Because Confirmation is a gift from God that is freely chosen, each candidate must request the sacrament from the Bishop.
Confirmation Date 2023
The Bishop schedules the date of Confirmation for each parish in our diocese. It will be sometime in the Spring of 2023
