One of the top 7 favs of the Church:
The Sacrament of Confirmation
We are so excited for you! You are about to embark on an amazing journey!
If you have been baptized Catholic and received First Holy Communion AND are between the 9th - 12th grade…. you GET to be CONFIRMED!
Our program goal is to:
*Invite each teen to encounter a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ
*To become a witness for Christ and His Church.
It is a time for our teens to recognize the “STEPS” to deeper knowledge and experience of their faith. It is also a time for them to appreciate that this is something they GET to do, not something they have to do.
The goal of this preparation is achieved through components of catechesis (instruction in the Faith), liturgy (public prayer and sacraments), service, and community building activities. This is completed through a STEPS program developed by Christopher Westly (Rebuilding Confirmation: Because We Need More Than Another Graduation, 2017) Assuming that you have been properly formed in the faith, the Confirmation preparation is a weekend long preparation & retreat….. and it is EPIC!
Registration for Confirmation in September.
If you are eligible for Confirmation and have not Registered, please contact Cindy Anderson.
The tentative schedule for Confirmation prep is:
Oct. 26-28, 2018
Feb. 8-10, 2019
April 12-14, 2019
*Candidates are asked to choose one of the above weekend retreat/courses.
OLR will celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation this year on MAY 23rd, 2019!
