Confirm your lifelong commitment
to serving God and his people
Teens who experience our Confirmation Program will find themselves drawn deeply into the beauty of Catholicism and the love of Jesus Christ. In a world searching for meaning, our instructors speak to the hearts and minds of our youth through comprehensive materials and an array of presentations. This is a new level of catechesis that uses modern methods to transmit eternal truths.
We explore salvation history, revelation, and the four last things. The instructors teach about the sacraments, the beatitudes, prayer, virtue, and Mary the Mother of God. We answer tough questions about love and sexuality, and it challenges the teens to say ‘yes’ to Christ, and to build His Church.
NO PREACHING, JUST THOUGHT PROVOKING QUESTIONS
Our instructors approach each of these topic areas by raising the questions which teens must ask.
Tough questions, like:
- How do I know God is real?
- Why be Catholic?
- Why tell my sins to a priest?
- Why do I have to go to Mass?
- Do I have what it takes? And
- Where do I go from here?

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CONFIRMATION:
What is Confirmation?
Confirmation imprints on the Soul an indelible spiritual mark, which is the sign that Jesus Christ has marked a Christian with the Seal of His Spirit and we accept responsibility for our faith by word and deed.
When can youth start Confirmation?
My teen is very involved in school and/or sports how does this affect their Confirmation Prep?
How much should I push my teenager to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation if he or she does not want to?
Confirmation must not be forced on a person who is rejecting it. That said, insisting that your teen completes his or her Confirmation Program is within your control. The only way they will know if they want to be Confirmed is to learn about it by attending all the classes and participating in the program.
