ORIENTATION DATES: Wed. 9/23 7pm or Thurs. 9/24 7pm
CANDIDATES MUST HAVE THEIR INTERVIEW BY ORIENTATION.
Individual interviews for candidates have begun and Preparations for the Sacrament will officially start for the 2015-2016 Year on Sunday, September 27th. In order to be in the Confirmation Prep Program, the Candidate must have attended 1 year of Faith Formation the year prior to entering AND schedule an interview with Chris Stevenson by signing up in person at the Parish Office.
Our Confirmation Prep is a comprehensive program that helps youth place their Catholic Faith at the center of their lives and ask a fundamental question: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15) Through Monthly Sessions, Community Outings, Meetings with their Sponsors, Retreats, and Service Opportunities the Candidates are diving into this question in a way like never before in their lives. Entering the Prep year does not mean a Candidate must be Confirmed.
Rather, the year allows the youth to discern how the Holy Spirit is working in their lives, ask questions, and be informed about ways to cooperate with God’s grace. Each youth is highly encouraged to make his or her own choice at the end of the Prep Year as to whether they are prepared to make this step and accept the Gifts of the Spirit into their lives in a profound way. If you are on the fence about whether or not you wish to be Confirmed, I highly suggest going through the preparation year first and then decide. Having an informed conscience always allows for the best decision.
