PREPARATION FOR THE SACRAMENT OF CONFIRMATION:

Currently, the process to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation takes place once a teen has turned 15, has already been Baptized and received First Communion, and who personally desires the Sacrament of Confirmation. Faith in Jesus and a desire for life in the Catholic Church is expected for all teens who request Confirmation. 

Teens that are not yet ready to prepare for Confirmation are encouraged to attend weekly Young Church, the Fall Spirit Retreat, our Summer youth events (such as the Steubenville Youth Conference or Lifeteen Camp), as well as continue to grow in faith as a family at home until a personal desire for Confirmation is authentic. 

WHAT DOES CONFIRMATION PREP FOR TEENS AT SFA LOOK LIKE?

The Preparation Process for a teen seeking Confirmation (who is eligible) begins with a Parent & Teen Confirmation interview. See above to schedule your interview. If eligible, the preparation process then includes 8 Teen Sessions held on Wednesday nights in Room 115. Students 15-17 years old can apply for Confirmation at any time (whenever they are ready). We have Confirmation tracks beginning in October, December, and March.
