Teen Confirmation

For the 2019-2020 School Year

Confirmation is the final Sacrament of Initiation into the Catholic Church where the Holy Spirit becomes fully active in our heart and life.

Confirmation prep at Our Lady of the Lake is a journey of community, friendship, prayer, and service usually taken sophomore year of high school, but older students are also welcome! Together we explore how Jesus invites us to live our Christian life to the fullest.

Confirmation runs in conjunction with our Life Teen program which meets Sunday evenings from 6:15 to 8:00 PM, September to May, following the 5:00 PM Life Teen Mass. See the calendar below

This page is for 2019-2020 Confirmation students to stay updated on Confirmation News and Events as well as to catch up on missed meetings, find and submit homework, and register for retreats or service opportunities.

Contact the Confirmation Director with questions.
