Confirmation

confirmationPreparation for the sacrament of Confirmation occurs along-side ongoing faith formation (religious education) based on grade level of your child. This sacramental preparation is SUPPLEMENTAL to the regular faith formation and you as the parent along with your youth will discern their readiness to begin the preparation and be an instrumental part in their review of curriculum for the sessions.

For post-Confirmation Youth  - you can apply to be a peer leader for the next Confirmation Class. The peer leaders are in integral part of the program. Therefore, it is important to discern if you have the time to devote to helping the next class of Confirmandi through the preparation program.  If selected, you will be expected to attend training and retreat planning meetings beginning in August/September, monthly class sessions beginning in September, the Retreat (December 3-5, 2021), the Confirmation Mass and the Mystigogia session after the Confirmation Mass. 

You must be able to commit to the following:

Training and Retreat Planning Session September 1st

All class sessions (9/14, 10/12, 11/9, 12/14, 1/11&25, 2/8&22, 3/8, 4/12, 5/10)

December 3-5th Parish Sponsored Retreat

Confirmation Mass – scheduled by the Diocese between Ash Wednesday and Pentecost

Mystigogia – scheduled after the Confirmation Mass

Monthly Confirmation sessions will be from 6:00 – 8:30 pm, the Retreat will be from 2:45 pm on Friday through Sunday at 2:00 pm.  There will possibly be a second class in January and February to complete catechesis required by the Diocese of Richmond to accommodate the possibility of Confirmation Mass during Lent.  Because we have so few sessions with the Confirmandi it is imperative that the peer leaders be present and prepared for each class session.  If you think you have the time, energy and interest in serving as a peer leader, please click the link to complete the application by June 30th.  If you have any questions, please contact Carole by email at [email protected] .

Just fill out the form below or CLICK HERE to download the application and drop it by the parish office to Carole's attention.
