Life Teen is place where teenagers have fun learning about their faith and uncover the richness of all that is awesome about the Catholic Church. It’s a place where they are proud to bring their friends.
As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.

How Does My Teen Continue with their Confirmation Program?
We offer many options for teens who want to get confirmed. It’s vital that they learn as much as they can about the Catholic faith in order to practice their faith fully as an adult. We offer a few options for them to learn their faith. They can choose from the following: Church Study, Home Study, and Catholic School. For those who choose Church Study, we typically focus on confirmation instruction in 8th and 9th grade and the teen receives the sacrament of Confirmation early on in 10th grade. Those who choose Home Study will order the materials, do the work at home and receive help from their parents. Our Catholic School students will receive their instruction at school and focus on the specific Confirmation portion with us on Retreat or a one-day event held at the church for Catholic School kids only. All of our students are required to attend one of our retreats during the year.
