Confirmation Peer Leader
Apply to become a Confirmation Peer Leader!!
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 2022, monthly class sessions beginning in September, the Retreat (December 2-4, 2022), 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 August 30th
All class sessions (9/13, 10/11, 11/8, 12/13, 1/10 & *1/24, 2/14 & *2/28, 3/14, 4/11, 5/9) *note a second class in January and February will occur if Confirmation Mass is during Lent.
December 2-4th 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 3:30 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 July 11th.
