The confirmation program will be an additional catechetical program offered on Saturday mornings and Sunday mornings. Candidates must attend one Confirmation class a month; the candidate can choose to attend either the Saturday morning workshop or the Sunday morning workshop (in addition to Sunday evening).
All teens are encouraged to become involved in a ministry in parish life. For assistance in choosing a ministry, those on the Life Teen core or Confirmation team can assist.
