Year 3 of the Journey to Confirmation

Journey Three students will attend our exciting Life Teen Light Nights!   Life Nights will include large-group components, such as speakers, music, testimonies, and games, as well as opportunities to break out into small groups for more intimate discussions led by Core leaders.  Life Nights will occur twice a month after the 5:00 pm Sunday Mass and end at 7:45 pm. They will also include a light snack and fellowship!

Sixteen sessions will be offered this year. Because attendance is extremely important during Sacramental Preparation years students are expected to attend all 16 sessions. We will allow up to 3 absences for illness.

Journey Three students will also attend a full-day Confirmation Retreat at St. Ben’s!   Bonus: on the Friday evening prior to full-day Confirmation Retreat, students attend a Service Night (making blankets for the homeless, eating pizza and hanging out with fellow students!)   

In this, the final year of the Journey to Confirmation, teens will apply what they learned the first two years to choose and write a report about their saint, choose their sponsor, and write a letter to Father Flood requesting to be confirmed. They will also read the provided virtual Confirmation Booklet and answer review questions. Journey Three students will also complete 10 service hours and submit a Service Hour Log. These assignments will be submitted via Dropbox to the Youth Ministry Office.  Note:  During the Journey to Confirmation, we remind parents that they are their teen’s primary catechist and we welcome parents to fully participate in the journey with their teen!

Catholic Private School Students

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. Private Catholic school students who are joining our program the year of their Confirmation have the same requirements as the other Journey Three students.   

Save the dates!

We will hold a very important Journey Three Parent Meeting on Sunday, August 6th after 5:00 pm Mass in the PLC. Come learn about this final year of your teen’s Journey to Confirmation!

Our 2024 Confirmation Masses will be Thursday, April 25th at 5:30 pm (for last names beginning with A-L) and Friday, April 26th at 5:30 pm (for last names beginning with M-Z.)

A special and sacred moment during the Mass as the clergy extend their hands over the confirmandi and the parishioners on Confirmation day.

Taking a break to take it all in alongside Father Flood. A long-time tradition, students at Saint Benedict wear a special white robe for the Confirmation Mass.
