CHOSEN Confirmation Program Year 1 & Year 2
Confirmation Prep (Gr 8+). Typically, Year 1 is completed in 8th Grade – and Year 2 is completed in 9th Grade. If your 9th Grader has not been in Religious Education consistently, and did not complete the 8th Grade (Year 1), he/she will be registered in Year 1 this year (as a 9th Grader), and Year 2 next year (in 10th Grade). These classes will meet twice a month in-person on Sunday, 11:15AM – 1PM. First class for Year 1 is 10/17, first class for Year 2 is 10/3.
There are a variety of forms for Year 1 and Year 2:
We use the Chosen series (by Ascension Press) for our Confirmation Program. This dynamic 24 lesson program starts in YEAR 1 and is completed in the spring of YEAR 2 with the Sacrament of Confirmation.
The goal of the Chosen program is to prepare your students both intellectually and spiritually to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation and to become lifelong disciples of Christ.
Confirmation Attendance Policy: Confirmation preparation is crucial to the spiritual growth of the candidate, so 100% attendance is required for all sessions by the end of each year. The classroom peer-to-peer setting is a critical aspect to the Chosen Program, so while at home make-up sessions are available, ideally students will attend an in-person make-up session. A student may not have more than 2 excused or unexcused absences and make-up sessions are required. It is important to email John Boutin, Confirmation coordinator, or call 248-689-8380 Ext. 108 as soon as you are aware of any schedule conflict. Please review your family and sports schedules beforehand and understand attendance at ALL classes is mandatory for credit (make-up sessions are offered as a courtesy – and not as a substitute to the classroom).
