Confirmation Preparation for High School Teens

OLF’s Confirmation journey for high school students, is a minimum two-year process. Teens are welcome to begin their Confirmation process in their freshman year.  However, we also have several candidates in their junior and senior years.

Each year, Confirmation candidates are required to attend a total of 12 classes between September and May.  Classes consist of  faith formation, doctrine, social  enrichment, and personal reflection.  Candidates will also participate in parish and diocesan events, service projects, retreats and regular attendance of Sunday Mass.

Parents play a primary role in their teen’s Confirmation process.  Having baptized their children in faith they are challenged to model that faith to their teens so they can experience its value on a daily basis. It is expected for parents to attend weekly Mass with their teen.

Sponsors play a critical role in the Confirmation process as  they provide insight, wisdom and encouragement to their candidates.  Sponsors are required to be fully initiated Catholics active in their Catholic faith by attending weekly Mass, and living their faith in actions.  Sponsors are to attend two scheduled Candidate/Sponsor events per year. (Check appropriate C1 or C2 calendar for dates.)  It is important for Sponsors to be willing and available throughout the Candidate’s Confirmation process.

Curriculum
We are pleased to continue to utilize Matthew Kelly’s  engaging Conformation Program, Decision Point, in our  OLF Confirmation process. We encourage you to go online and look at the Dynamic Catholic website, www.DynamicCatholic.com. In the search area, type in Decision Point, from there you may review the program.  While in the Dynamic Catholic website, browse around, and enjoy your visit.

Requirements
We don’t like to think of the Confirmation process as another “requirement’ to add to the list of “things that must be done.”  Rather, Confirmation is a continuing process on one’s faith journey toward His perfect light.  Our faith journeys are life long, and the Confirmation process is simply a section of your faith journey.  The primary requirement for one to be engaged in their Confirmation process is to:

BE PRESENT with an OPEN HEART!
