The Confirmation Formation Process

Go and make disciples of all nations.
— Mt 28:19

Our Lady of Grace is really excited to share our new Confirmation Program with you. We  are transitioning to an 18-month program starting in 7th grade. Our Candidates will receive the Sacrament in the middle of their 8th grade year. We are looking forward to walking with your youth in their journey to Jesus. The goal of our program is to bring our youth closer to Jesus through a personal encounter with Him. Our sessions include small group sessions, large group events, family and sponsor events, and a weekend retreat. We want to prepare our youth for the new challenges they will face in their journey to God. We live in a challenging world, so please help us with your prayers to keep fostering more disciples of Jesus.

"I very much enjoyed my Confirmation process. It has been a great blessing in my life and I have grown closer to God. I have also developed a deeper relationship with my sponsor. I especially liked the Confirmation Retreat because it allowed me to disconnect from everything going on, and focus on Jesus.” - Charlie, Confirmation Program 2016-17
