High School Youth
The Confirmation Program consists of the 9th and 10th grades. Classes will be held Wednesday evenings beginning at 6:30pm and concluding at 8pm. The 9th grade Confirmation class will focus primarily on the Mass with a strong emphasis on the importance of the Eucharist. The 10th grade Confirmation class will learn about the Sacrament of Confirmation and the influence of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Church. Students in the Confirmation program will be required to attend one retreat each year, and will be encouraged to participate in service projects that will be available on a regular basis. In order to be Confirmed as a 10th grader, students must have been active during his or her 9th grade year of Confirmation.
The Youth Group is a new program dedicated to helping students in High School, who have already received the Sacrament of Confirmation, encounter Christ in everyday life. The Youth Group will not be in the normal lecture format, but it will rather encourage students to ask questions about their faith, offer their time and talents in charitable projects, and grow closer to their peers in Bible Studies and spiritual retreats. These classes are not required to attend, but we would love to see as many students as possible attending!
