Youth Confirmation Preparation Process

The Youth Confirmation preparation process normally takes two
years to complete. Each “year” begins in August and runs through
the following July. Upon completion of the process requirements,
the candidate is confirmed here in the parish by the Bishop at the
scheduled date in April/May of the second year. To be eligible to
participate in the process, you must baptized and be at least a
freshman in high school and willing to actively participate in
Youth Ministry and regularly and consistently participate in liturgy,
prayer and service within St. Bernardine parish. The operative
work is “Participation” . The following is considered minimum
participation in the life of St. Bernardine community for the
purposes of Confirmation:

• Pray daily
• Keep Holy the Lord’s Day - Participate in Sunday Mass
every Sunday
• Attend all “Sunday Confirmation Sessions” which take place
on specified Sundays. Meetings are from 11:00am to 12:30
PM Some of these Sundays require attendance by both
candidate and sponsors/parents. We are currently using the
Dynamic Catholic- “Decision Point” Program.
• Perform 20 hours of community service. These may be the
same hours a student works to fulfill a school service
• Participate once each month as an Altar Server, a Cross
Bearer, an Usher/ Greeter, or a musician/choir member at
Sunday Mass at St. Bernardine for two years.
• Participation in at least 12 Wednesday Nite Youth Sessions
per year. Wednesday Nite sessions are scheduled year
