Youth Ministry (High School)
Pre-Confirmation (Grades 9 & 10)
In the freshman and sophomore years, your students will strive to develop a stronger faith and grow in their understanding of Christ’s mission in our world. They will also grow to appreciate and respond to their own role in making His message come alive. These years of formation lead to preparation for Confirmation when students are 16 or in the 11th grade.

Group Activities:Students will participate in activities beyond the classroom setting including:
•Stations of the Cross
•Reconciliation in Lent
•Youth group activities
•Wisconsin Catholic Youth Rally
All high school students in 11th grade, both private and Public school students, join the program as they anticipate Confirmation.The students in the confirmation program will build upon their knowledge of sacraments and the creed. Focusing on the action of the Holy Spirit, students will be challenged to recognize God’s presence in their lives-especially when it comes to making sound moral decisions and seeking social justice.Besides the classroom experience, Confirmation students will participate in learning service projects, a retreat, prayer services, and experience special guest speakers. All of this culminates in their decision to receive the sacrament of Confirmation-the initiation, or beginning, of adult commitment to continue their faith journey.
IMPORTANT!! Please understand that the Sacrament of Confirmation is a TWO-YEAR preparation process. Just as with all other sacraments, teens must be enrolled in 10th grade CYF or Catholic High School in order to be Confirmed as a Junior.
