The Youth Confirmation Program is meant for High School aged teenagers preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Our mission is to impart a sense of community, family, and confidence to our students. With the knowledge gained we hope the students have a more meaningful faith life that they will carry with them in their lives and share with everyone they meet.
Previously our classes met in person either weekly or bi-weekly in one of our meeting halls on the grounds of St. Joseph. This year we have made the adjustments to teach virtually. Each class will meet on scheduled days (see class schedules) via Zoom or watch a previously prepared video hosted on our parish website. Students are expected to be present and participate in discussions on their Zoom classes. Also submit answers to questions when watching the prepared videos. In the spring of 2021 we are going to evaluate the safety of returning to in person classes. Taking into account the guidelines from the state, county and archdiocese.
Enrollment is limited and requires a parent and student interview with the Confirmation Coordinator.
Year 1 Sunday Track: This is a 2 year program that meets on Sunday bi-weekly, observing holidays, from 10:30am to 12:00pm.
Year 2 Sunday Track: This is to complete the 2 year program and meets on Sunday bi-weekly, observing holidays, from 10:30am to 12:00pm.
ICC (Intensive Confirmation Course) Track: This is a 1 year program that meets weekly on Wednesdays from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. This program is intended for High School Seniors that want to complete their sacraments before entering college.
It is important that faith formation continues in the home and with families outside of the Confirmation program. To help the parents with this they are required to attend a virtual class scheduled once per month with their son or daughter.
