Requirements

All those to be confirmed must participate in our teenage Alpha program. This program consists of 11 sessions and a two-day retreat. The sessions will consist in food, fellowship, a short video presentation, small group discussion, and prayer. 

All confirmation candidates are also strongly encouraged to participate in our Life Teen program, which takes place after most 5:00pm Sunday Masses. These Life Nights offer a meal and address relevant topics that our teens are wrestling with in a Catholic context. Life Nights are opportunities for your teen to grow in holiness and pave the way for them to have a lifelong relationship with Christ.
