Youth Ministry & Confirmation
*All Jr. High and High School Youth Group gatherings are postponed at this time due to Covid-19 restrictions*
Our Confirmation Classes have begun!
Confirmation is a 2 year process for Candidates who are at least in the 9th grade to start.
A Candidate can begin their Confirmation journey when they reach the 9th grade.
Candidates that are 18 or older will not enroll with us but will enroll in the R.C.I.A. (Adult program) smmcam.org for info. on that program or email Michelle:
We feel that in-person gatherings are critical for the wellbeing of our youth physically, mentally and spiritually. In order to make this work we need all participants to follow safety protocols no matter your personal feelings on the current state of the world. For in-person gatherings, all participants MUST wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.
*These in-person gatherings are subject to change depending on the Covid-19 situation.
In-person classes will be on Thursday nights from 5:30p-7:00p. We will meet at the outside tent were we have Sunday mass (25 Las Posas Rd).
*We will be watching the status of Covid-19 and with the guidance of our Pastor, Fr. Preston, we will by updating our schedule regularly.
We will also be supplying our Candidates with a second class that will is an original series named "Called to Confirm". Each episode will be emailed to our families with a link to a Google quiz that each Candidate needs to complete for class credit.
We encourage you to watch the videos as a family BUT only the Candidate is to fill out the quiz!
We have no information on CONFIRMATION RETREATS for this year at this time.
***Please note that our schedule may change at anytime to new restrictions or less restrictions due to Covid-19. For this reason ALL CONFIRMATION FAMILES MUST FOLLOW US ON OUR INSTAGRAM (@smmyouthministry) AND YOU MUST SIGN UP TO OUR GROUP MESSAGE APP REMIND (remind.com/join/c6dg3)
