Sacrament of Confirmation for Youth
The goal of our Confirmation preparation program is to help students prepare to not only receive, but also to live the Sacrament of Confirmation. Our program includes service, instruction, prayer, a retreat and spiritual growth.
"The sacrament of Confirmation impresses a character and by it the baptized, continuing on the path of Christian initiation, are enriched by the gift of the Holy Spirit and bound more perfectly to the Church; it strengthens them and obliges them more firmly to be witnesses to Christ by word and deed and to spread and defend the faith." (Canon 879)
Confirmation is a two-year program beginning in seventh grade, with the Sacrament of Confirmation conferred during the spring semester of eighth grade. If your eighth-grader was not enrolled in a religious education class in seventh grade, he or she will be enrolled in the first-year Confirmation class for this term and receive Confirmation the following year.
If your child is in high school and has not received Confirmation, please contact Lynn Mayer, Youth Minister at 913.492.7382 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
