Sacrament Preparation for High School Teens

We invite teens to receive salvation through the waters of Baptism, Prepare to Receive the fullness of the Power of the Holy Spirit through Confirmation, and Encounter Christ in their First Holy Communion

Life Teen High School Ministry

Life Teen is a Catholic high school youth ministry program aimed at fostering the spiritual and personal growth of teenagers. It is a comprehensive program that seeks to engage teenagers in the life of the Church, helping them to deepen their relationship with Christ, grow in their understanding of the Catholic faith, and become active members of the Church community. The ultimate goal of Life Teen is to help young people discover their God-given purpose and become lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.

Confirmation Preparation for Teens

At SVDP, our process of preparing teens for Confirmation is a minimum of 2 years of formation, projects, and inspiration through our mentors, meetings, events, and retreats.  In their Beginning Year, students will meet in small groups to explore the foundational truths of Catholicism and Morality.  In their Final Year, typically their second year, students will dive deeper into Discernment through the Holy Spirit, and Catholic Spirituality.  During EACH year of Confirmation preparation, teens also must attend the following Large group meetings:  Fire Nights, Spiritual Nights of Prayer in the Church; A Student Safe Environment Training, and a Spiritual Confirmation Retreat provided or approved by the Director of Youth Ministry.

When registering for Confirmation, please turn in copies Baptismal and First Communion Certificates to the Parish Office.

Teens who have not yet received First Communion will be asked to take First Communion Classes before they start their Confirmation Formation.

First Communion Preperation

Teens are required to go through a full year of Preparation classes before they start Confirmation classes. If they are on their second year of confirmation this year then they are required to go to 5 extra classes. We encourage teens who are preparing to receive First Communion to attend Sunday Mass Faithfully during their formation. All dates and Info are on the linktree above!

Service Requirement for Confirmation Students

The Sacrament of Confirmation calls us to serve others as Christ did.  Before the Last Supper, Jesus washed the feet of his 12 disciples, modeling for us Christian Service.  He then says….

 “I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.” John 13:15


Each year, while preparing for Confirmation, teens are required to do 3 Service Projects to get familiar with “Christian Service.”  Our hope is that in these 2 years of preparation, you will find a sense of purpose in serving others, and discover how God is calling you to serve others.

Confirmation Retreat

The Confirmation Retreat is a mandatory event each your for all High School students preparing to receive Confirmation.  Below you will find links to Information about the Confirmation Retreats.
