Recordings of 2020 Confirmation Masses


Overview-

The Journey leads teens right up to the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation. Our final year is different from all previous formation classes in that it is aimed at helping teens integrate all of their learning from the Journey’s two previous years into their daily life with their peers.   Guest speakers and small group discussions are vital components on our Year Three program.  CORE teen mentors and adult volunteers lead small group discussions and themes of weekly speakers and discussions are mandated by the sacramental prep program from the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

For 2020-2021, we moved our program online!

  • Students will have both awesome virtual catechist-led lessons and independent online lessons!
  • Content will be the same as if we were able to meet in person!
  • Each class will access their own Google Site for all content!
  • All classes will be Sundays 6:15-7:30 – see calendar below!
  • Our program is designed to move back to in-person meeting when/if we can without missing a beat!

Teens who attend a Catholic Private School for their high school years must receive the sacrament of Confirmation in their home parish. At St. Benedict, teens who have attended a Catholic private school for 9th grade and are enrolled for 10th grade may join our Journey to Confirmation program in the 10th grade.

At St. Benedict, we believe that Confirmation formation should include fellowship along with the topics required. Therefore, our students who attend Catholic Private schools are required to attend Sunday night class a minimum of 8 times during the year. Teens may choose which 8 nights they want to attend.

In addition to all of the 10th grade assignments, Catholic Private School students need to submit the Sponsor Verification Form and their Saint Report, which were completed by the other students in 9th grade.    See Confirmation Checklist-10th grade (Catholic Private School) for details.
