In First Year Confirmation we go through the Bible Overview. This is so that when your student enters 2nd year they have a firm grasp on the Scriptures so that they can better understand what is in the Catechism
2nd and 3rd year Confirmation will go through the 60 lesson Catechism study.
In 2nd year they will learn the Commandments and meanings as well as the Lord's Prayer and explanations to the petitions.
In 3rd year the students will go through the Creeds, Sacraments, and Office of the Keys.
After the students are Confirmed we do not view this as a graduation. We view confirmation as just the beginning in our students personal faith life. We encourage our students to continue on into youth group, where they will learn how to defend their faith and to stand strong in their faith.
