The Curriculum

We useLifeTeen’s Purpose Confirmation Sacramental Preparation Program.

Purpose is a transformative approach to Confirmation.

The Purpose curriculum sessions focus on evangelizing young people and accompanying them as they become disciples. The curriculum addresses three  big questions, “Why believe in God?”, “Why trust Jesus?” and “Why be a part of the Church?”

These sessions combine powerful teachings, videos small group discussions,
 activities and  games to evangelize and disciple teens.

For additional information about our program, please contact youth minister Jake Burmis.

About the Program

Confirmation is one of the sacraments of initiation, in which we receive the fullness of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in order to share the Gospel.

Preparation is open to those in their freshman year of high school and older. Preparation includes formation/preparation meetings, retreat, service projects, parent and sponsor meetings, and other events. The Sacrament of Confirmation is received in the spring of the final year of preparation.

Adults interested in receiving Confirmation should explore RCIA.
