Welcome to the Confirmation Program at St. Lawrence Martyr.
Receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation as a High School teenager is a two year process. The goal of our program is for every teen to develop a personal relationship with Jesus. Classes, occurring twice a month, emphasize personally encountering Jesus all the while illustrating the truth, goodness, and beauty of our Catholic Faith and Tradition. One teen may feel the peace of God in the silence of prayer and Eucharistic adoration. Another teen may experience God through wisdom that illuminates how to handle stress. While yet another will feel the Joy of God through the friendships developed. Candidates become agents of goodness and positivity by completing several Christian service projects each year. Teens also experience at least 4 opportunities to intently develop their spirituality and faith through the weekend retreats and diocesan events. A truly life-giving journey, we hope that you choose St. Lawrence Martyr to prepare your teen for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
