Welcome To Confirmation Progam at Southeast Catholic !
What is Confirmation?
Confirmation is the Sacrament that completes Baptism; through it the gift of the Holy Spirit is bestowed upon us. Anyone who freely decides to live a life as God's child and asks for God's Spirit under the signs of the imposition of hands and anointing with Chrism receives the strength to witness to God's love and might in word and deed. He is now a full fledged, responsible member of the Catholic Church. YouCat 203.
About Southeast Catholic YOuth Confirmation Program
To be eligible to receive Confirmation, you need to be at least 16 years of age and a junior in high school. IMPORTANT!! Please understand that the Sacrament of Confirmation is a THREE-YEAR preparation process. Teens must be enrolled in a 9th &10th grade Faith Formation program or a Catholic High School in order to continue and be Confirmed in their Junior year. Any questions?? contact Rebecca Scholz.
Confirmation candidates will have hands on classroom experience. Building off of the previous years of Formation candidates will be able to understand how to put what they learn into action. Focusing on the action of the Holy Spirit, students will be challenged to recognize God's presence in their lives-especially when it comes to making sound moral decisions and seeking social justice.
Confirmation candidates will participate in a retreat, church life, and prayer services. The sessions are conducted in a large group setting with further reflection and discussion in small groups. The orientation to start off the year is held for parent, candidate, and sponsor. This is obligatory to obtain necessary information.
