St. Mel Teen Confirmation Program
Welcome Teens, Parents, Sponsors and Families,
Thank you for taking the time to visit our page. We hope that you can join us on this journey of Confirmation here at St. Mel. If you are a teen going or are already in high school, this is the place for you!
To share a little bit about the Sacrament of Confirmation, it is a Peparation Process that invites high school-aged youth to receive the sacrament and to deepen his/her faith. This process is grounded in a vision of youth ministry in which the parish community responds to the needs of the youth and encourages them to return to share their unique gifts and talents.
During this two-year process, teens, sponsors, parents and families will journey together in identifying and understanding how God is working in their lives. Candidates will be given many opportunities to embrace their personal relationship with Christ as well as their commitment to the Church.This includes formation, fellowship, worship and youth ministry inspired by Life Teen.
We hope that you and your family consider joining us on this adventure of Confirmation and Youth Minsitry. As a community, we are here to support and pray for you! So let us all be intentional in our prayer life seek to have a better relationship with God the Father, the Son and the Holy spirit.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
We look forward to an amazing year together, filled with spirit, life and love!
Sincerely in Christ,
Director of Youth Ministry and Confirmation
