This year, St. Patrick's is changing the Confirmation Preparation to a two year program that combines catechesis, small group discussion, service, liturgical rites, retreat and outreach. The year is designed for students to journey through honest discernment towards the sacrament of Confirmation to become fully initiated members of the Catholic Church.
Each week will involve a presentation by either our Youth Minister or a guest speaker followed by small group discussion. 8th graders will be taking part in our first Quest Retreat here at St. Patrick’s and out 9th graders will be taking part in a NET retreat.
With this being a new change, 9th graders will still be Confirmed this year!
