Teens in grades 9-12 are invited to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Confirmation process is a one year program beginning in the fall, with the celebration of the Sacrament taking place in the spring. The Confirmation curriculum used is Decision Point, and it uses a variety of videos, small group discussions, and activities to prepare youth to receive the Sacrament. When students enter into the preparation process, they agree to participate in a small group that will meet weekly on Sundays (6-7:30 pm), participate in a parish ministry of their choosing, and attend a day long retreat. For more information, contact Emily Bauer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 763-424-8770 ext. 133.
