Welcome to parents and Confirmandi!
Here you will find information about the sacrament of Confirmation for those interested and those enrolled.
Confirmation at St Luke’s is a two year program beginning in 7th grade and ending with Confirmation at the conclusion of 8th grade. Classes begin in the fall and run through the school calendar with a break during the summer months. We are currently using the Chosen program from Ascension Press to form teens in the faith and prepare them for celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation. Teens who have missed the 7/8th grade years of faith formation and return with the desire to be confirmed (or move to the parish without having celebrated the Sacrament) are prepared in a similar way. Students enrolled in Catholic Schools (MACS) are part of the program and celebrate the sacrament with the parish but receive regular formation through their schools.
Currently there are two sessions happening:
Confirmation Year 1 (Confirmed in 2022)
Confirmation Year 2 (Confirmed in 2021)
In light of COVID, both Sacramental years are receiving formation online through Zoom class meetings (or some are working through the material as a home-based program). We hope to resume in-person formation when it is safer to do so and will keep parents and the parish informed of those transitions once it’s possible.
Parents of Confirmation Year 2 teens can find all the links to forms, schedules, guidelines, and contacts at the following website:
Registration for faith formation classes usually takes place in late spring/early summer and notice given to the parish through the bulletin, announcements, and email blasts. If you have any questions, please direct them to email@example.com or the office.
