Missionary Discipleship Formation & the Sacrament of Confirmation

High School, Grades 9-12

Confirmation Preparation Curriculum:

Our Missionary Discipleship program is designed to empower our teens to live out their call to discipleship in the everyday world. We have a two year curriculum that, if fully engaged in, will help to open them up to receiving the Seal of the Holy Spirit in the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Spring of the second year. In brief, the two year program consists of the following:

Year 1 (typically 9th Grade): Chosen Confirmation Program, Year 1. Produced by Ascension Press, the Chosen Confirmation Program presents the Gospel and the Catholic Faith in a way that engages young people to really make their faith their own. Along with video presentations, each session will incorporate small group discussions, prayer, and scripture to wrestle with life’s biggest questions and grow a vibrant relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. For a full calendar of dates and topics, click below.

CONFIRMATION YEAR 1 - FAITH FORMATION 2023-24 SCHEDULE

Year 2 (10th Grade and up): Chosen Confirmation Program by Ascension. As we transition into this new chapter of life, what does it mean to be confirmed?  What or, more accurately, Who are we receiving in the sacrament of Confirmation? The Chosen Confirmation Program dives deep into the Church’s wisdom and creates a space for candidates to really take ownership of their faith through small group discussion, scripture, and prayer.

CONFIRMATION YEAR 2 - FAITH FORMATION 2023-24 SCHEDULE

 The celebration of Confirmation for this year’s Confirmation Candidates: Sunday, May 12, 2024 at 2:00pm at the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis.

Other Confirmation Requirements: All youth in our program are asked to participate in a retreat, pilgrimage, or mission trip prior to receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. Along with this, we ask that they participate in a High School Faith Formation service project, as well as serving the parish in some capacity (parish service project, serving at mass, etc.). These are designed with the intent of giving the participants a deeper experience of living out their discipleship. These opportunities will be communicated to students in our faith formation classes and parents via Flocknote periodically.
