High School Confirmation Prep Program
Jesus’ first words on the scene were, “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:14-15) Nineteen simple words that contain one giant, life-changing, life-saving message. But what do they mean for our lives today? The answer is...everything!
The St. Vincent’s Confirmation program this year will be exploring in an in-depth and hands-on-way of what the gospel means when it says that the Kingdom of God is at hand...right there for us to take hold of.
Jesus is alive and He wants to encounter you where you are and walk in relationship with you, as you allow the POWER of His Holy Spirit to dwell in you and transform you AND the world around you. The Kingdom of God also means making Jesus the King of our hearts...of truly living, not a compartmentalized Catholic life, but an all-in life of discipleship--walking with Jesus minute by minute and doing the things that He did while He was on earth.
The high school Confirmation Program at St. Vincent’s is designed to be an experience that will help each participant not only prepare to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, but also to develop and deepen his or her relationship with the living God. The program is designed to make available teaching, prayer and evangelism experiences, as well as community life that will encourage each participant to live out life-long discipleship of Jesus, as an active member of the Catholic Church.

We use a number of wonderful Confirmation Curriculum resources. Classes will typically consist of a short video teaching, followed by small group break-outs where students engage with each other, as well as adult discipleship mentors and peer, Disciples in Mission team members in conversation about the content, and how God is working in their lives.
