Unleash Confirmation

Why Unleash?

We're calling our Confirmation Program "Unleash" because, well, that is what we want to do! We want to take the time of Confirmation Preparation and make it less about learning facts and more about the lived experience of faith. Taking our cue from Unleash the Gospel - a pastoral letter from the Archbishop of Detroit - we desire to let the Holy Spirit work freely in our lives to transform us to be the Church not just of the future but of right now. In every age, God raises up saints with the gifts, talents, and passions to turn the world on its head. How many of them are among us, needing our support and encouragement to be the best version of themselves? Let us work and pray together to Unleash the Holy Spirit in the lives of our young people!
