“There is a God who loves me
He lives within me
There’s a world that needs Him
So He sent me to them”

Greetings!

Our Confirmation Preparation Program will look a lot different going into the Fall of 2020 than it did earlier in the year. The good news is our God is greater than a pandemic; and He continues to reveal Himself to us each day. As we do our best to continue with our ministry, we ask for your continued prayers and patience as all of our plans are subject to change with current health conditions.

Our hope for our Year Two Confirmation Program is to not only provide youth with a transformative experience to prepare them for the Sacrament of Confirmation, but to also empower them to become lifelong disciples and evangelists in a world that is desperately seeking a purpose that can only be found in Christ. The curriculum addresses three big questions, “Why believe in God?”, “Why trust Jesus?” and “Why be a part of the Church?”

The Confirmation Year Two program includes meeting twice a month on Sundays for our Confirmation sessions, and a Year Two Retreat.

We will be offering two models of our Year Two Program: in-person or virtual. We are asking that candidates commit to one model throughout the duration of the program, so that we can maintain safety for the participants and integrity of the small group experiences. 

Due to Covid=19 safety regulations, prior to every in-person Confirmation Year Two session, parents/guardians must complete a health screening for each child/youth attending. A printable version of this health screening form can be found here.

Registration: If you wish to continue with the Confirmation Preparation Program here at St. Pius X, it’s important that you register for Year Two so we know of your intention to continue. Registration for the year two program is open! Please click the button below.

Schedule: A Schedule for our Year Two sessions can be found via the button below. In-person and virtual candidates will both meet at the same time on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 – 2:15 pm. Prior to the pandemic, our Year Two sessions were paired with Sunday’s noon Mass. While we have not yet resumed this Mass in our parish reopening process, it is our hope that we can resume it soon. Placing our trust in the Lord, we will continue to hold our Year Two sessions on Sundays, from 1:00-2:15 pm.

Each candidate must attend each session. Candidates are not allowed more than three (3) absences. Any additional, unexcused absence must be made up with Lauren Numrich, our Youth & Young Adult Minister.

 If you have any questions, please contact Lauren Numrich or Heidi Cummins at confirmation@stpiusxloudonville.org or at 518-462-1336 x 2009.

Thank you and God Bless,

Lauren Numrich and Heidi Cummins
