Confirmation

Here at Sts. Mary and John we are using the Decision Point Program developed by Matthew Kelley and the good people at Dynamic Catholic.  

DECISION POINT is the first Confirmation program specifically developed to engage young Catholics in a meaningful conversation about the genius of Catholicism.  It teaches and inspires teens to respond to God’s grace, and it’s changing hundreds of thousands of young lives. Today, DECISION POINT is the most used Confirmation program in America.”  

Our first session was titled “Life is Choices”.  We all make hundreds of choices everyday and our choices matter.  The choices we make help us to become a better-version-of-ourselves or to become a second-rate-version-of-ourselves.  It’s extremely important, especially in this culture where there are so many negative influences, to be a good decision maker, and that cannot be done without the guidance of the Holy Spirit. 

Our program launches with a parent/student meeting, then continues with student initiated study, activities and service. Meeting times are on Sunday morning. High School students are to be at least 16 years old or a Sophomore in High School to register for classes.
