If your teen has completed the prerequisite year, your teen is ready to start the Confirmation process, which looks like this…

  • One Year, starting with the Day of Recollection in August (required) and ending with Confirmation Mass in the Spring
  • Meeting approximately once a month on either a Tuesday or Wednesday evening from 7-9:00pm. Students will choose at registration which day (Tues or Wed) they would prefer.  That day will not be guaranteed, however, once a student is placed, they will remain in the same group/day all year.
  • Attending the mandatory Confirmation Retreat

Ministry Description

Read below for a summary of our Confirmation program by grade.

Freshman:

Freshman year is a very exciting year of starting high school, but also as Freshmen begin the preparation of another journey — a spiritual journey.  Here at St. Maria Goretti, students will enter into our Confirmation program as Sophomores.  To be ready to enter into the Confirmation program, a prerequisite foundational year of religious formation is required.  There are three options to meet the prerequisite year: attending a Catholic high school, participating in TRUTH, or participating in FAITh classes.

TRUTH is the high school youth group that meets on Sundays in the youth room from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm.

FAITh, Freshman Active In Theology, is a formation class that meets the same Wednesdays as Confirmation class from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm. FAITh is conducted in a more traditional academic class format in a smaller group setting than a youth group meeting setting.  The material FAITh will cover during their meetings comes from the text book “Called to be Catholic”.

Sophomores:

What a great journey is in store you …..this is your CONFIRMATION year!  The Holy Spirit is ready to lead this spiritual journey and bestow His Gifts to you!  St. Maria Goretti’s Confirmation preparation program is a one year program that starts with a Day of Recollection in August, continues monthly formation meetings and service hours and concludes with a weekend retreat.  All to help you come to learn and grow in your love for Christ, His Holy Church and faith community!

Juniors & Seniors:

TRUTH, the high school youth group, meets on Sundays in the youth room from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm! You can be a part of great presentations and discussions about our Catholic faith, activities and games, retreats, social outings and service projects!  Sign up and see what all the fun is about!  See you in the Youth Room!

If you have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation, no problem, we’ve got you covered.  You can have the best of both worlds…..TRUTH and Confirmation!
