The Sacrament of Confirmation
Preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation begins in grade 9 and includes monthly sessions, a retreat, and an interview with the pastor and coordinator. Sessions are held one Sunday a month. The time is determined by the small group leader. Confirmation is celebrated in the fall of the 10th grade year.
Faith Formation Participation Expectation
To help ensure that youth have a firm grounding in faith prior to being fully initiated at Confirmation, it is expected that all students preparing to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in the fall of 2016 will be registered for faith formation classes for a minimum of two years (both the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 academic years). Faith formation is offered in parish-sponsored programs, home-school programs or through enrollment at Lourdes High School.
Faith formation opportunities
are available at Holy Spirit on Sundays (First Sundays 11:00 AM-2:00 PM and/or Sunday Plus) and Wednesdays (FiRE from 6:15-7:30 PM).
