Confirmation

A Two Year Program for Grades 9 and 10

Confirmation in Lexington 

Contrary to popular opinion, Confirmation in the Catholic church is not graduation from Religious Education, nor it is not "confirming" as an adult the choice parents make when they baptize their child. 

Confirmation is a sacrament that strengthens the action of the Holy Spirit in the one who is confirmed.  Confirmation allows us to better withstand the pressures of society and the popular culture, holding fast to what is good and true in the world.  

The program is designed to help young people develop a personal relationship with Jesus and has four "semesters".  

Grade 9/Semester One: Getting to know Jesus through Scripture. 

Grade 9/Semester Two: Developing a relationship with Jesus through various forms of prayer. 

Grade 10/Semesters Three and Four: How do we live as a disciple of Jesus? Encompasses morality, chastity, the Creed and service and justice/Catholic Social Teaching.
