On behalf of the Youth Ministry team, welcome to the St. Benedict Journey to Confirmation Program. This 3 year journey, 2 years of formation and 1 year of preparation for the Holy Sacrament, will provide reflection and growth opportunities for teens in a supportive faith environment.

The Journey reaches teens through many different facets-Classes, retreats, service opportunities, praise (in and outside of the Mass), social events, small group discussions, videos, teen mentors, priests, deacons, and dedicated and enthusiastic adult volunteers!

We encourage your questions; contact us anytime. Thank you and God bless.

In the event that a teen has an absence, beyond the 3 allowed for the year he or she will need to make up their faith formation time at an approved event and turn in the makeup form below.   Students in 8th and 9th grade are able to attend class on a different day of the week to make up for an absence. 

  • XLT at All Saints Catholic Church in Dunwoody count as make up events.  See:  XLT Atlanta for dates/times/details. 
  • St. Benedict’s Parish Advent Mission also counts as a class make up.    Fr.   Michael Nixon, pastor of St. Dominic Parish, Panama City, FL will lead our Advent Mission once again to update us on their progress as they continue to rebuild their community after the devastating impact of hurricane Michael.Fr. Nixon will help us to understand how FAITH can carry us through even the harshest of circumstances, and how we can all find HOPE as we prepare for the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ on Christmas Day.
    December 2nd & 3rd, 2019, at 9:00AM and 7:00PM. Fr. Nixon will speak in the AM then repeat his talk in the evening. Each session, except Monday night, will start with Mass and finish with his talk. All talks are FREE
