Special Prayers for our Confirmation Candidates

We wanted to share with great joy in the Lord that next Sunday, February 17th, 110 candidates (8th graders) from our school and parish will be receiving the sacrament of Confirmation at the Cathedral. They have successfully finished their preparation and are excited to receive this special seal from the Holy Spirit. It has been a great year of spiritual growth and lots of prayer. We thank all the d-group leaders, parents, sponsors and friends who have supported them during this time.

Please let us unite in prayer for them in this special time and ask the Holy Spirit to keep igniting their hearts and help them in their journey to Jesus. 

P.E.S. Sisters, Confirmation Coordinator and Middle School Youth Ministers

Confirmation Program 2017-2018

Bring Our Youth Closer to  Christ!

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.

Grow Closer to God

“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.” (Testimony of Charlie, Confirmation Program 2016-17)
