Confirmation for 10th Graders Fall 2018

(10th Grade in Fall 2018)

What is the purpose of Confirmation requirements?

The purpose of Confirmation requirements is to help your teen understand this very special sacrament and to draw your teen deeper into relationship with the Lord throughout the Confirmation process. However, we don’t want to add stress to your life!  If your teen has a repeating Sunday afternoon commitment, or another problem with the Confirmation requirements, please email Caitlin so that we can determine the right path for your teen.
