The Purpose Confirmation Program for 2019-2020 A Focus on Evangelization
The Purpose curriculum is 24 sessions with a heavy focus on evangelizing young people and accompanying them as they become disciples. The curriculum addresses three big questions,
"Why believe in God?", "Why trust Jesus?" and "Why be a part of the Church?"
The Sacrament of Confirmation is, with Baptism and Eucharist, one of the three Sacraments of Initiation; Confirmation completes and confirms the grace of baptism. At the Rite of Confirmation, the candidate is anointed with the sacred chrism and the baptized person is enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit, and more than ever obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed. (Catechism of the Catholic Church).
The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in 8th grade and for High School & Adults at St. Stephen
