Teen Confirmation

Youth who are between the ages of 13-15 years old are invited to join us on the journey towards the Sacrament of Confirmation. The journey is two years long and is headed by our Youth Minister, Lupe Rios. Confirmation Candidates will also join and participate with other youth from our parish in The ARK Youth Ministry at Mary, Star of the Sea.

As of September 2020, the Diocese has allowed classes to meet in-person once again. However, the program will also be available virtually to those who are more comfortable meeting that way. A short description of the program is as follows:

  1. Sign up now until September 20th, 2020. See Below for Forms.
  2. Parents will receive an email invitation to review the process via an internet presentation accessible from your own home. We will use the “CHOSEN” program from Ascension Press.
  3. Once parents have reviewed the program information, we can then add the candidate via email to the course, and the calendar years proceeds as usual with at home participation until further notice. 
  4. Middle School and High School youth group will follow a similar set up.
