High School Confirmation Prep Program
The high school Confirmation Program at St. Vincent’s is designed to be an enriching 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 God. The program is designed to make available teaching, experiences, and community that will encourage each participant to live out life-long discipleship of Jesus, as an active member of the Catholic Church. We are excited to offer a wide variety of opportunities that will enrich the faith-life not only of the high school aged participant, but of that student’s #1 faith-formation support system—their parents and family, as well as their sponsor. Each class, assignment, youth night, parent/family and sponsor requirement, etc. is designed to help form true friends of Jesus who are connected to the parish community as well as the universal, Roman Catholic Church, and live out their calling from God as missionary disciples. Jesus said, “Ask, and you will receive; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7) Our goal is to provide a space for students to ask questions, to seek God earnestly, and to knock on His door through many prayer experiences. As the Lord promises, all who seek Him with their whole heart will find Him with them. (Jeremiah 29:11)
The Confirmation Prep Program is a Two Year process, typically begun in 9th grade (however, students may start at any time in high school. **If out of high school, the course for Confirmation is RCIA--Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. Call the office to inquire.

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.
