CONFIRMATION

FOR TEENS

SPRING 2021 - Registration

What

One of the three Sacraments of initiation, Confirmation is a gift for the life of discipleship. Preparation will help students come to understand 'why believe in God, why follow Jesus Christ and why be Catholic' before receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Who

Students must have been Baptized and received first Communion before being Confirmed.



Confirmation preparation takes place twice a year.

Available to students who will be 15 by December 30 (Fall Session) or May 30 (Spring Session).

Sign Up

There is no cost and you can sign up your student for the Spring Session HERE.

"The administration of this sacrament by them [the Bishops] demonstrates clearly that its effect is to unite those who receive it more closely to the Church, to her apostolic origins, and to her mission of bearing witness to Christ."
-Catechism of the Catholic Church 1313

Sessions

There will be 12 sessions to re-emphasize the Kerygma (Catholicism 101) and to allow each student to consider following Jesus with even greater nearness.

THURSDAYS | 6:30-8P

Confirmation classes will be Thursday evenings (6:30PM-8PM) in the PCC Auditorium. For students who have health concerns with meeting in person, an online option will be available.

Day Retreat

Each term will conclude with a day retreat to spend more time in prayer and fellowship before receiving the Sacrament.

Sponsor

When receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, a candidate will choose a sponsor to be an example and mentor in the Christian life:

  • It is appropriate, but not required, that the sponsor be one of the baptismal godparents
  • The sponsor cannot be one of the candidate’s parents.
  • He/She should be in good standing with the Church
  • He/She should be 16 years or older
  • He/She must be fully initiated Sacramentally into the life of the Church (Baptized, Confirmed and received first Communion)

Confirmation Saint

Each student will choose a Saint who intrigues, inspires and leads the student to a greater desire of committing his/her life to Jesus Christ. The Saint is not only an example, but someone who becomes a friend and guide through the incredible gift of the Communion of Saints.
