Confirmation Mass for 2018 is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 12th, at 11:00 AM. Date and time will be confirmed around January/February of 2018.

Preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation is truly an exciting time in your life because it is an important decision just for YOU. Most of us are baptized into the church as an infant or child because our parents wanted to give us the gift of faith…but as we get older, faith becomes a personal decision. Confirmation is God’s invitation to choose to say our own “YES” to faith!” Through Confirmation, God sends the fullness of His Spirit upon us to help us as we choose to follow Jesus!

Is your Catholic faith relevant to your life today? If you’ve ever thought of Catholicism as boring, irrelevant, or old-fashioned, we will excitedly show you otherwise! Our gatherings are more about what it means to be Catholic NOW and how Jesus’ self-sacrifice over 2,000 years ago still applies to us TODAY! We also do service projects and become a little family away from home as we learn more about each other. We’re all different from different families and different situations. To help us realize God’s love for each one of us we have a variety of guest speakers who share their faith journey. Faith journeys are unique—some people know they love God from the very beginning; others have to search before discovering the importance of faith in their life, and some fall in-between those extremes. God has a special journey just for you!

Being in high school has a lot of demands on your time and energy, so we allow free Sundays so you can spend time with family, catch up on homework, or hang out with friends!
