Confirmation Class

confirmation

For 7th through 8th Grades and Junior High / Young Adult

The Confirmation class draw on the Catechism of the Catholic Church in preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

The Confirmation classes begin again on Sunday, Sept 24. With a fun and conversational style, we focus on the substance of the great story of salvation, the drama of the Covenant People. We’ve had tremendous classes the last few years and look forward this coming year.
Classes are 9:45am-10:50am in Room 213 (or meet us in the Parish Hall) most Sundays (see schedule).
