2020-2021 Confirmation Schedule

The goal of Life Teen is not to have a pass/fail course based on attendance. The program’s aim is to form teens in a Eucharist-based environment, encouraging a relationship with Christ. The goal is to have teens coming on Sunday nights because they are captivated by the content and intrigued by the idea of deepening their faith, not because they fear an attendance penalty. If students are having scheduling difficulties, each Confirmation related event has a “credit point” value. Students who keep up with set credit point goal will be on track for Confirmation with the most minimal scheduling commitment. Which each semester having a theme, materials resurface across multiple nights.

Fall 2020 Confirmation Program Schedule

To be on track for Confirmation, all ninth grade students should achieve at least 8 credit points by December 20, 2020 and all tenth grade students should achieve at least 5 credit points by November 28, 2020. To enroll for the Confirmation program, please the Our Lady of Fatima Faith Formation Registration Form.
