“What is expected?”
Confirmation is a two-year program at St. Peter’s. Teens must be active with Life Teen in order to sign up for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This includes active participation in one of our formation sessions we offer for an entire year. *Attending half the year, just a few times, or just being signed up does not translate into active participation. Once a teen completes their formation year, we invite them to sign up for Confirmation Preparation.
1st Year Process (Formation Year)
Participation for an entire year in one of our weekly formation sessions is required in order for teens to move into the 2nd year phase. Attendance is taken and given to Father Norm at the end of the year for review. If participation is lacking then the teen must fulfill his or her obligation the following year before being allowed to enter the Sacramental preparation process.
Weekly formation options: Diving In, Wednesday evenings 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM / Life Teen, Sunday evenings 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
2nd Year Process (Sacramental Year)
Confirmation sessions run from October to May and includes a weekend retreat, normally the first weekend in December, and interviews with the coordinator. Attendance is vital: If a teen misses more than 4 sessions either semester they will be asked to repeat the process. Also, attending a Confirmation retreat is a mandatory part of the Confirmation process. If a teen cannot make our retreat in December, it is the families responsibility to find and arrange an alternate retreat, we will help you find one within the Archdiocese.
Weekly Confirmation Sessions meet on Wednesday's 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM, if there is enough demand, there is also a Thursday evening option 7:00 - 8:30 PM.
Items Needed at the beginning of the 2nd Year:
- Baptismal Certificate
- 1st Communion Certificate
- Sponsor Information Sheet
- Parent Information Sheet
- Confirmation Agreement Sheet
