>>> Confirmation Program Guidelines >>>
Our Confirmation program is a two-year discipleship based program designed to meet each teen where they are at in their catechesis and formation. Our High School group leaders are committed to walking beside each teen and discipling them through their time in the program, challenging them to ask questions, engage in discussion about things they may disagree with or not understand, reflect deeply on where Christ is in their life and develop a faith life rooted in prayer and the Sacraments that will continue to flourish long after Confirmation preparation ends.
> Meeting times:
Confirmation I and II Lesson: Every week students must visit www.rcchouston.org/confirmation-on-demand watch a short video on the material and then answer the questions that follow. The weeks’ lesson will be available from Wednesday at 9am - Tuesday at 12pm. Each time they submit a form with their name they will be marked present, if a student does not complete the question form it is considered an unexcused absence.
