Confirmation is a sacrament in the Catholic church that reaffirms the faith. Through the twelve week preparation, we will explore what it means to be Catholic, what are our beliefs and who to live by them. It will also allow the teens to ask questions, explore the faith and grow closer to our Heavenly Father.
All high school teens are invited to Life Teen . We strongly encourage those preparing for Confirmation to participate in Life Teen as part of their formation where they can be part of the larger youth community.
The Confirmation process we will be using is “Chosen”. It reminds us that God knows and loves each one of us and we are CHOSEN to walk with Him. He wants us to know Him and have him reside in our hearts.
Receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation requires some discernment by the youth. Through sessions of “Chosen”, we will help the teen through this process. Confirmation will meet the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm in Francis Hall. Please check the calendar for exact dates. Teens preparing for Confirmation are strongly encouraged to participate in Life Teen as well. We would like to see the teens not just make a commitment for the sacrament but to commit to a life of ministry and service with other teens that share their faith. Life Teen meets Sundays 5:00 pm—7:00pm in Francis Hall.
At. St. Anthony’s we strive to make ministry affordable to all youth and only charge what is needed to cover expenses. We also want the youth to have a rich experience. The cost of Confirmation is as follows:
- Book $20
- Retreat $150—pays for transportation, food and accommodations for 2 nights
- Rise Up Rally—$40/ child if we can carpool there
