From September- May everyone in grades 9 - 12 are welcome to join us on Wednesday Nights from 7 - 9 pm in the parish hall. Each meeting is a mix of prayer, games, activities and teaching. This serves as a part of our two year formation process that prepares high school students to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Confirmation Questions & Policies

Do I have to go on a retreat?

Yes, each teen is required to attend one Most Precious Blood Retreat during each year of Confirmation Preparation, two in total. They are held in the Fall November 18-20th, Spring March 16th-19th, and Summer June 15th-18th. 1st year students can attend any of the three retreats and 2nd year students can attend either the Fall or Spring retreat. Catholic School and Diocesan retreats DO NOT fulfill the retreat requirement

Is there an attendance policy?

Yes, each teen is required to attend our Wednesday Night Life Teen sessions. Teens cannot miss more than 3 classes a year. If teens arrive significantly late or leave significantly early it will be counted as a half absence. Teens are responsible to sign in with their table leader at the beginning of each class. Teens are also allowed to bring friends to the sessions.

How can I make up missed classes?

Classes may be made up by attending approved faith formation events and meetings at Most Precious Blood. Learn More

Who can be a Sponsor?

Any Catholic who is age 16 or older, has been confirmed, and is currently practicing their faith by attending Sunday Mass every week. A birth mother or father cannot be a sponsor for their teen. Sponsors can be one of their Godparents.

Am I required to attend Sunday Mass?

Yes, a teen in Confirmation preparation must attend Sunday Mass every week. Every Catholic is required to attend Mass every Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation.

Is the process different for Catholic School students?

Catholic School students are expected to fulfill all the same tasks outlined under Confirmation Requirements. Catholic School Students will not be required to make up missed classes throughout the year, but are still expected to be active in Youth Ministry at the Parish.

Can I bring a friend with me on Wednesday Nights?

Yes we encourage Teens to bring their friends. Visitors are always welcome.

Is there a dress code for LifeTeen sessions?

Teens are expected to dress modestly and respectfully. A few Helpful guidelines are: Shorts must be no shorter than 2 inches above the knee. Halter-tops, spaghetti straps, etc. are not permitted. Clothes should fit appropriately; they shouldn’t be too tight such as spandex or too baggy such as pants that sag too far. They also should not have inappropriate words or graphics. If someone is dressed immodestly, we will ask you to change to something more appropriate.

What if I do not have all my sacraments?

Please indicate on your registration forms that you are in need of other sacraments and we will contact you with more information. Baptism, Reconciliation and First Communion require some additional formation. That will be held on Sunday Mornings.

Is the process different for Catholic School students?

Catholic School students are expected to fulfill all the same tasks outlined under Confirmation requirements. Catholic School students will not be required to make up missed classes throughout the year, but are still expected to be active in Youth Ministry at the Parish.
