2017-2018 FAITh Calendar

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 evenings as Confirmation class from 7:00 pm – 9:00 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:

Junior Year…. Are you ready to be a leader? TRUTH NEEDS YOU!!!  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 not only attending but PLANNING TRUTH’s great presentations and discussions about our Catholic faith, activities and games, retreats, social outings and service projects!  With the Junior/Senior Leadership, you will be an active voice and leadership in TRUTH.  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!
