“…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, and faith.” --Galatians 5:22
The St. Therese Youth Confirmation Program is a two-year (per Archdiocesan requirements) religious education program to prepare high school students (normally, Ninth- and Tenth-Graders) to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Students begin in the Fall of their Freshman year of High School and receive the Sacrament in the Spring of their Sophomore year.
Our program is divided between first-year (C1) students and second-year (C2) students. Each group meets in the Parish Center one Sunday per month from 9:00 to 10:45 a.m., and one Tuesday evening per month from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Classes are in session from September through May. Click on the CALENDAR link for specific dates.
Each student will need to choose a Confirmed, practicing Catholic to be his or her Sponsor. The Sponsors will be involved with the program during both years.
Our Classes challenge the youth to be witnesses to Christ and His Church. The program also encourages full participation in the Sacraments through catechesis based on the "Catechism of the Catholic Church." Parents and Sponsors are encouraged to attend the Sunday 11:00 a.m. Mass with their candidate when classes are in session. It is mandatory for Sponsors to attend the classes and the Mass.
