High school freshman may enroll in the Confirmation program provided they have participated in some religious education the prior year. Classes meet on Wednesday evenings in the Parish Center from September through May. The program includes an overnight retreat. Candidates for Confirmation are expected to participate in ongoing community service projects. Special sessions for parents and/or sponsors are scheduled throughout the year. The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated for the youth at St. Henry during the Easter Season.
The 2018-2019 school year will bring some significant changes to the Confirmation program! We are going to a 2 year preparation process. Confirmation year 1 will be for all students who are in 8th grade and any student in grades 9-12 who is new to the St. Henry parish community. Confirmation year 2 will be for all students who completed our 8th grade program this spring. Our goal is to have more time to develop relationships, connections to our Catholic community and to create habits of faith together. We are excited to welcome your family to a deeper level of commitment and participation in our parish family!
