Grade Nine is the first half of the two part Confirmation program and required even for Catholic School students. This year will focus on deepening the student’s faith through works of mercy, Adoration, guest speakers and retreats. We will incorporate many facets of everyday Christian life into our gatherings, including prayer, praise and worship. We will discuss what it means to be a follower of Christ and learn how to walk in His way of life, even today, when society has drifted so far away from the values and teachings of Jesus. We will support each other in this often difficult journey, by finding Christian ways to embrace and overcome the challenges we all face, which will not only bring us closer to Christ, but to each other as well.
Often we will skip the regular class format to take part in local Catholic Teen Events, which may fall on days other then Sunday. You will be notified of these events as early as possible to help you “Save the Date.” The purpose of these events is to help your teen learn more about their Faith, to see that we are all part of a larger Catholic Church, to meet other teens who share the same beliefs and values, to hear from world-renowned guest speakers that come to the area, and to grow in friendship with each other.
Attendance is required for weekly class and all events as part of the Faith Formation. Parent email contact is extremely important for schedule updates and/or changes.
