“Confirmation unites us more firmly to Christ. It strengthens our relationship with the Church, and it gives us a special strength from the Holy Spirit to defend the faith and confess the name of Christ.” – Pope Francis
2017-2018 Confirmation Program
St. Anselm’s Confirmation Program is open to all youth who will be entering 8th grade this Fall 2017. If you have a youth who is in High School and still needs to be confirmed, they are welcome to enroll.
We will be using again this year Chosen from Ascension Press. As stated on Ascension Press’s website, “Chosen’s carefully designed methodology features highly effective and engaging material conveyed through videos, student workbooks, and classroom experience. Guides for leaders, parents, and sponsors––as well as additional online resources––make Chosen unlike any program available in the Church today.”
Classes are held on Sundays from 3:30 pm-4:55 pm at our parish hall/ followed by the 5 pm mass with peers/family. Attendance to both the class/mass are part of the program’s requirement. All youth are also required to attend their Confirmation retreat.
There are two class date where our hall is being used so we will have class at our parish school for those two dates.
