High School Confirmation
Staff Contact: Ana Maria Alvarado, Pastoral Associate
Are you a high schooler who would like to get confirmed? Do you have at least two consecutive years of faith formation (including this year)? The current COVID19 crisis has provided a unique opportunity for those who, in the past, may have not had time to complete the requirements. We are creating at home content for this year only and community service opportunities. Please contact Ana Maria Alvarado for more information on how to get started at Ana.Alvarado@saintdrexel.org
In Confirmation, baptized youth are strengthened by the Holy Spirit for the challenges of living as Christian disciples. Confirmation completes the graces of baptism and perfects the common priesthood of the baptized.
High School aged youth who are baptized are invited to participate in a preparation process leading to the celebration of the sacrament of Confirmation. This process includes catechesis focused on the sacrament, participation in parish ministry, community service, a pilgrimage, and a retreat. Additionally, regular participation in a parish faith formation program or religion class at a Catholic high school is required. For information on how to register for our faith formation programs visit our faith formation page.
Confirmation Preparation for Teens
Teens Must be registered for Confirmation and Must first attend the Parent/Teen Overview before attending or signing up for any other component. The Parent/Teen Overview is a meeting for teens and one parent or guardian where we discuss the logistics of our confirmation program as well as an introduction to confirmation. For additional questions or concerns please contact Ana Maria Alvarado.
Each of these classes needs to be completed at least once. Please sign up before attending.

- Creed – Click to sign-up.
- Worthy of the Call – This must be taken by a 14-18-year-old wishing to help with children’s ministries. It is also a CORE requirement of confirmation.
