High School Grades 9-12
The high school Confirmation program is a two-year process with the goal of fostering and developing the faith life of the youth of St. Pius V church and confirming them in the Spirit to be mature adults in the Catholic faith. Throughout this journey, teens will be able to personalize their faith by engaging in discussions on life, faith, and Jesus Christ. This is a journey that teens will not walk alone. St. Pius V Church is committed to engaging the entire family in the sacramental preparation process. During these two years, teens will be accompanied by their parents, family, sponsors, godparents, friends, and the greater parish community. This isn’t simply a Confirmation class; it is our hope that teens will grow and connect with the support of the community that surrounds them.
