Dear Parents,
The Life Teen Core welcomes you and your high school sons and daughters to another year of our Life Teen - Confirmation Preparation Program. This year, as in the past, our program’s mission is to provide a faith-based structure for our teens that will help them to grow in their faith, become part of a strong community of believers, and create opportunities for them to establish a closer relationship with Christ. The program’s key objectives are “Growth in Knowledge”, through teaching, study, Scripture and class discussions; Increase in Faith”, through prayer, sharing faith and the sacraments; and “Growth in Love”, through service to family members, the Church and the greater community. Our program will again be led by our Life Teen Core, composed of adult parish members, teachers, and ministers. We are looking forward to working with the teens of our parish and it is our hope that this program, along with the support and cooperation of our teens’ families, will help to build the faith of our youth and encourage them to seek greater participation in a Catholic community as adults.
Classes for our Life Teen - Confirmation Preparation Program will begin on the third Sunday in September and finish the third Sunday in April. Sessions for the first Sunday of the month will be from 9:00 to 10:30am in the Science Lab/Gym followed by Mass at10:30am in the Church.
