Chosen, the Confirmation preparation program at St. Pius X is a comprehensive Catholic preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This program provides practical, step-by-step ways to help teens grow closer to Christ and His Church. Through a series of sessions based on creative and experiential catechetical methods, young people are drawn into a deeper faith that will transform their hearts and change their life. The format for the sessions models that of a youth group with a gathering, a teaching, a small group or individual exercise, and a meditative prayerful sending forth.
The 2016-2017 Confirmation program will begin Sunday, September 18th. Confirmation classes will be held from 10:15-11:15 AM on Sunday mornings. Following this year of Confirmation preparation, Bishop Jugis will visit and the teens who have completed their preparation will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
The time of Confirmation for the Diocese of Charlotte is reserved for those students who are at least in the eighth grade. Participation in a faith formation program, whether that be Catholic school, Middle or High School Faith Formation is mandatory for the year prior to and the year of the Confirmation Preparation program. Finally, those not enrolled in a Catholic school must also participate with Breakout concurrently with their participation in Confirmation Preparation.
