Confirmation Preparation & Celebration (7th and 8th grades)
New this year – 6th graders will continue with the LANE program on Mondays and Wednesdays!
7th and 8th graders will be preparing for Confirmation, which is now a two-year program. Only 8th graders will be Confirmed.
Our Purpose program allows young people to be open to the Holy Spirit through social, educational, and spiritual experiences. They will build upon their foundation of the Catholic faith and become spiritual participants within the Church now and into the future in a fun and engaging way. Students will be in large and small group settings with their peers and will build community while learning, praying and growing closer to God. Incoming 8th grade students who are baptized are eligible for the Sacrament of Confirmation. 8th graders will be Confirmed in the Spring at the Cathedral of St. Andrew (date TBA). We have bi-weekly meetings together with the 7th grade group.
A parent meeting will be held in early October detailing the process and schedule for the year, student and parent responsibilities, the Confirmation retreat, and other information.
Purpose (7th & 8th grade) is held bi-weekly on Sundays from 6-7:30pm from October through April. We also have a weekly Bible Study for the Purpose group that meets on Wednesdays from 6-7:15pm in the youth room.
Outside of the regular programs, we also offer students several spiritual and social events to attend throughout the year such as retreats, rallies, lock-ins, and more. Many of these events are coordinated with other churches throughout our diocese. Registration and further information on these events is communicated throughout the year via email and social media. For questions, contact Carla Niziolek.
