According to the Diocese of Monterey Guidelines, youth confirmation is a two year faith journey process for teens in grades 9 through 12. Our confirmation program empowers young people to live as Disciples of Christ and prepares them for a lifelong Catholic journey of faith and action.
Because the confirmation program is multi-layered, it offers a wide range of experiences for the youths. The foundational layer begins on Sundays at the 12:45 liturgy and continues in MacMahon Center for food, fellowship, and a “breaking open” of the weekly Gospel Reading. In addition, all youths are required to attend Generations of Faith, the parish’s intergenerational program. Furthermore, each year the youths will attend two retreats: one in the spring and one in the fall. Finally, in following Catholic Social Teaching regarding stewardship, all youths will participate in outreach.
