Confirmation is a sacrament in the Catholic church that reaffirms the faith. Through the one a month 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.
Receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation requires some discernment by the youth. Confirmation will meet the 1st 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 there is no Confirmation from noon – 1:30. You will see in the requirements that a teen must be actively participating in the parish to be enrolled in the preparation for the sacrament. Please look at the requirements in the document attached.
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:
- Retreat $170—pays for transportation, food and accommodations for 2 nights
- Rise Up Rally—$40/ child if we can carpool there
- Spring Service Retreat – $20
Scholarships are available for anyone not able to pay. Please contact the parish office.
