Life Teen/Confirmation

Life Teen and Confirmation Programs

We offer a Life Teen program on Sunday nights from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM for ninth and tenth graders. This fulfills the Religious Education requirements for public high school students, but any high school student is encouraged to attend. There is also a Confirmation preparation component that takes place at the same time that both public and Catholic school students participate in. The Holy Spirit Alive Confirmation program concentrates on the gifts and charisms of the Holy Spirit which will allow our teens to discover the mission and plan that God has created for each of them.

Both Life Teen and Confirmation preparation programs consist of interactive nights featuring ice breakers, teachings, small group discussions, skits, prayer, socials and awesome food. Students are drawn to the close connections and fellowship that they build throughout the course of the programs. Our core team is committed to providing an enriching spiritual and social experience for the formation of you or your teen.

We are involved in many social events and spiritual retreats including a Life Teen/Confirmation student retreat, parish-wide volunteering and outreach opportunities, Sky Zone, and more dynamic events.
