At SMG, teens entering their Sophomore year of high school are eligible to begin their spiritual journey of Confirmation formation. In order to be eligible to begin, teens should have completed a prerequisite foundational year as a Freshman. Options to meet this prerequisite are as follows: attending a Catholic high school, participating in TRUTH, or participating in FAITh classes which meet once a month from 7-9pm. If your teen has not completed one of the prerequisites and is going into the Sophomore or Junior year, your teen can complete one of the outlined options and become eligible for Confirmation the following year.

With freshmen required to complete a prerequisite year before enrolling in Confirmation, we’re offering a class for those who prefer a more academic setting! This class is led by four youth ministers and based on the Called to be Catholic text book. Homework and reports are included and more information can be found in the Confirmation Handbook. Students who want to enroll in both FAITh and TRUTH may do so at a discounted price.
