Preparation sessions for Confirmation of both High School Students and those in 7th and 8th Grades will begin in January 2020 and conclude prior to Easter.  The goal of the Confirmation program at St Charles is threefold:
1. “The Gift” of being a Disciple of Jesus Christ and following his Way of Life.

2. The skills needed for doing so, e.g.,

a) how to pray  and,

b) how to read the Bible, etc.

3. Know how to connect with their companions on the journey of life

This  is a home centered program of 10 dialogue sessions, with parents, based on the topics of the Nicene Creed which we pray every Sunday. In addition to a registration session and three group sessions, there will be a retreat. According to the Bishop’s schedule, the Sacrament of Confirmation will take place sometime after Easter.

Families of St. Charles, St. Patrick, St. Rita and Holy Cross are invited to participate in the preparation for Confirmation either at St. Patrick (Youth in 8th through 12th Grade), which begins with registration on Sunday Sept 22nd or at St. Charles, which begins in January 2020. For Youth Confirmation information at
