Confirmation Program for Grades 9-10
Confirmation is the Catholic sacrament of initiation into adult discipleship. The two-year process of preparation involves classes, service, liturgical ministry, reflection, and dinner retreats.
Confirmation classes are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:45-8:00 pm in our church. Typically, Confirmation is conferred upon students in the
tenth grade during the Easter Season or as the Bishop's schedule
provides. Participation by students, parents and sponsors in meetings and
retreats is required.
The Director of our Confirmation program is Tom Thibodeau.
When parents attend Sunday Mass, this is the primary
distinguishing mark of being a Catholic and is the cornerstone of all
religious education. The Christian formation of families, homes that
are rooted in the Catholic faith doesn't just happen, but rather takes a
comprehensive, intentional effort that includes frequent Mass attendance
and participation in the life of our faith community as well as personal
prayer and service. The Catholic Church also recognizes that the
primary responsibility for religious education of children and adults
resides within the family. MMOC works in
partnership with families to strengthen and provide well-rounded
Catholic faith formation for our members of all ages.
