Saint Bartholomew’s Confirmation preparation program for youth is typically a two-year program.
Confirmation I is available to any student, 8th grade and older, who is ready to explore preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. It is focused on growing the student’s knowledge of the faith, and will be offered weekly on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:15 p.m. from the end of September to mid-May, coinciding with local school breaks.
9th grade and older students who have completed Confirmation I (or otherwise demonstrated knowledge of the faith, i.e. attended Catholic School, meeting with the DRE) may enroll in Confirmation II. Over the course of one year, students attend seven two-hour classes, two half-day retreats and an off-site retreat (all typically scheduled on Sundays) prior to the Rite of Confirmation.
To register for youth Confirmation I or II please contact email@example.com or 347-0701, ext. 219. Registration for Confirmation II will take place during the Summer with forms due by August 15th.
