Confirmation Preparation Enrollment:

Step 3: Prepare Enrollment Materials

A. Make sure Holy Redeemer has your Baptismal Form on file.

B. Have a working knowledge of the Catholic faith as appropriate to your age.

C. Write a letter requesting to begin preparing for confirmation.  This should be NO MORE than one page long.  It should have three parts: Hopes for the Future, Journey, and Accompaniment.  Please use the questions below to help you develop your thoughts.  The purpose of this letter is to help us get a better sense as to where you are starting this part of your faith journey.  Please be honest.

Hope: What type of Catholic man or woman do you envision being in the future?

What is discipleship?  
What is the difference between knowing about Jesus and knowing Jesus?
What does it look like to live like a saint?
Heaven is the goal, what is your plan to get there?

Journey: What Steps Do you Need to Take to Get Closer to God?

Do you have any commitments that will make completing the preparation to receive this gift difficult?
What spiritual goals do you want to set for yourself during this process?
What do you think is most important in having a personal relationship with Jesus?

Accompaniment:

Who have you chosen as your sponsor?  
Why have you chosen them?
How can they help you grow in holiness?  

Note: "Sponsors are individuals who have a special place in the teens’ lives by standing with them at Confirmation and continuing to accompany them and guide them in the years that follow."  Wesley, Christopher. Rebuilding Confirmation: Because We Need More Than Another Graduation (Rebuilt Parish Book) (p. 25). Ave Maria Press. Kindle Edition. 

Step 4:  Set up an appointment with Jamie to discuss your process.
