The Confirmation Program helping form Disciples in 2019-2020 kicked off with a retreat on October 19th. This year the 2019-2020 Confirmation Candidates meet Sunday's in 8 two-hour sessions beginning after 10am Mass ending at 1:15pm.
The Celebration of Confirmation is set for Wednesday May 13 2019 at 7pm at St Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church in Two Rivers. Bishop David Ricken will be presiding.
Here is a calendar for the upcoming year. Prior to the October 27 retreat there is a required one hour meeting between the Family, their Candidate and Dcn Tom Tomaszewski to go over the program, expectations and requirements in the families home at our mutual convenience.
We will be using the Ascension Press Chosen curriculum as our base this year. The use of this Curriculum will also make doing make-up sessions easier because of the online component available in this program. The references you see in the Schedule indicate which chapters we anticipate covering during the program.
Any missed Retreat, Class or one on one sessions must be made up. We will make every effort to develop make-up opportunities as convenient as possible in keeping with other class schedules and requirements.
Discipleship Formation Confirmation Program
In addition to attendance at the Retreat and Class sessions there are the following elements to our Confirmation Discipleship Program in 2019-2020 including:
completing Confirmation Process Related forms
completing 20 Stewardship/Service Hours, and
completing 5 Monthly “Worship Notes.”
The worksheets for the warious requirements are at the bottom of this page.
We hope the “Worship Notes” will help Students engage more fully in the weekend Mass experience. We assume they are already attending weekly Mass.
The Stewardship/Service Hour requirement allows us to experience being the hands and feet of Christ and in many ways is one of the most important parts of the Confirmation process. Please note the goal is give students the opportunity to grow spiritually through these experiences; so, we ask these service hours be specifically tied to Confirmation Discipleship formation and not applied from other programs or projects.
Teens who attend Roncalli Catholic High School are strongly encouraged to attend Life Teen Sessions. It enriches the Confirmation preparation for everyone, helps us grow together in our relationship with Christ as a community with the Church, Parish and fellow confirmandi. Participation in the Confirmation Sessions are required for private school students.
