Welcome to St. Joseph's Confirmation Program!!!
During their eighth and ninth grade years, our young parishioners have the opportunity to complete their sacraments of initiation by preparing for the sacrament of Confirmation. Confirmation brings to each person the spiritual gifts needed in order to mature and grow in their faith and to be steadfast in the face of difficulty.
St. Joseph Catholic Church has a vibrant and active confirmation program. We are blessed to have an abundance of wonderful adults, young and old, who love sharing the faith with young people to assist us in their formation program. They are compassionate, devoted, and well informed on matters of the Catholic faith. We look forward to working with you!
8th Grade Year
Young people typically begin their formation for Confirmation in the 8th grade. The eighth graders are prepared using the EDGE program and supplemental lessons. This year is focused on solidifying the teachings of the Church, a life of prayer, and an understanding of the moral life of a Catholic. To find out more about the EDGE program, on the image below:
The EDGE program is offered at two different times each week:
1) Wednesday nights at 6:30PM
2) Sunday afternoons at 4:00PM
Also, eighth graders may fulfill their Confirmation requirement by attending Catholic school or participating in a Home Study program.
9th Grade Year
The second year of formation will lead ninth graders into our Life Teen program where they will be engaged in activities with others preparing for Confirmation as well as those who have already received the sacrament and are seeking to deepen their faith journey.
