Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, the Prince of Peace Confirmation program changed to allow for parents and teens to more fully engage in their faith together. The Confirmation program will remain a two-year formation and preparation program, traditionally beginning in seventh grade, with the Sacrament of Confirmation conferred during the spring semester of eighth grade. The Confirmation program engages the candidates in a variety of ways to help them grow in faith and better prepare to witness Jesus to the world.
Confirmation preparation is required in order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
At Prince of Peace we will offer two different ways to fulfill your Confirmation preparation:
- EDGE. Edge is a middle school youth ministry. We start the night with a game, have an engaging message, meet with small groups, and end with prayer. Edge meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30PM-8:00PM in the youth room. This ministry is open to all 7th and 8th graders to participate in, including School of Religion students, Prince of Peace School students and those students from within our boundaries.
- Enrollment at Prince of Peace Catholic School. Enrollment at Prince of Peace Catholic School and participation in the school's Religion class fulfills Confirmation preparation for those students’ 7th and 8th grade year.
Finally, Fr. Jerry is most excited about our final change to the Confirmation program. We are asking all families to participate in at least two parent formation nights during the year. We will offer a variety of meetings and they will cover a variety topics, such as: Stress, Anxiety, Self-Harm, Internet Safety, Love Language, Drinking, Drugs, and Addiction.
These nights will be on top of the MANDATORY Confirmation Parent/Teen meeting we will have before the start of the year.
