Our Confirmation program is open to high school age young people. It is a two-year program involving 12 preparatory sessions each year (approximately every third Sunday), and participation in special meetings and activities of our parish youth ministry program. The preparatory sessions will take place on Sunday mornings in one of our churches for approximately an hour and fifteen minutes. Time and church location still to be determined. Each candidate is expected to invite someone older to be a companion for them as they prepare for the sacrament. This companion can be the candidate’s relative or family friend, someone who has already made their Confirmation. The expectation is that this companion will take part in the Sunday meetings with the candidate. Substitutes can fill in on occasion if need be. The role of the companion is to share in reflection with the candidate on the video presentations which constitute the core of the program.
In addition to the Sunday sessions there will be two youth ministry meetings or activities each month. These meetings will be at Mercy on Fridays at 5:00 PM. Social distancing and safety protocols will be observed.
