Confirmation Sacramental Preparation (16 years of age or older, usually Grades 11-12) combines the large and small group faith sharing format beginning in September for teens to learn more about our Catholic Faith, Sacrament of Confirmation, and experience our faith through a variety of learning and prayerful experiences.
During 2021-2022, our Confirmation Preparation will offer teens and families a choice of two different options. Preparation begins in September, 2021 and concludes in February, 2022, when the teens receive the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, February 26, 2022.
- Option 1: This option offers a blended approach of large and small faith sharing discussion groups, with some sessions held in person at church, and some sessions at home for personal faith study enrichment.
- Option 2: This option offers all faith learning and faith study enrichment to be completed at home.
Each option provides teens the opportunity to explore and deepen their personal relationship with our Lord; in-depth time to learn about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit; and to experience our faith through a variety of learning experiences with scripture, prayer, sacraments, exploring our Catholic beliefs, and discipleship.
We are excited and privileged to walk this journey with the teens of St Elizabeth Ann Seton. For more information about our preparation, Contact Mickey Holtz, Director of Youth Ministry or call the Christian Formation Office at 262-782-8982.
