Teen Confirmation Preparation registration is now open!
The preparation process this season will be varied and flexible as we are working with an ever-changing set of restrictions and requirements; we appreciate your participation and desire to grow in faith. When in-person gatherings become allowed, we will re-evaluate how to best serve our community and determine whether a in-person, online, or hybrid gatherings will be feasible for the remainder of the year.
Calendar coming soon!
Registration is encouraged for all high school age teens, but only required for those pursuing the Sacrament of Confirmation. This year, we have a separate form for high school/Confirmation preparation and children/families grades 1-8. Please fill out the appropriate forms. Contact Vita or Gayle for more information.
Currently all of our children and youth programs are currently suspended from meeting in person until further notice. Know that you and your families are being prayed for and we cannot wait to gather in person again! Please visit our Mass Times page for more information about joining us for Mass, whether indoors, outdoors, or via livestream.
Confirmation is the beginning of the rest of our lives as Catholics! It is the moment where you stand up for yourself, claiming that God has a primary place in your life and you are choosing to live differently because of that fact. The Holy Spirit, once again, enters your heart and stirs up the gifts God gave you at Baptism to be your truest self.
If you are an adult over 18 years seeking confirmation, please go to the Christian Initiation page.
Typically, Catholics are Confirmed as teenagers, and our regular process is open to High Schoolers as early as Freshman year. 2019-20 registration is open. Saint Brigid Parish offers a 2 year Confirmation preparation process focused on building intentional and personal relationships with God and one another. This process is part of GIFT, our Saint Brigid Parish process for faith formation. Teens preparing for Confirmation will attend quarterly retreats and participate in small group series. The 2019-2020 retreat dates are November 16, February 8, and April 25, and the small group series will run during Lent. Our process is ever-growing, so stay tuned for updates and information on getting connected or serving our teen Confirmation Candidates!
In the Diocese of San Diego the minimum age for Confirmation is 15, so we encourage teens to consider beginning their preparation as they enter high school. Many will go through the preparation process as usual, while others take more time to discern or wait until they are farther into high school to make this commitment. There are also times, that a baptized Catholic hasn't been confirmed at the ordinary time and we certainly welcome them too. Whether you’re coming back to the Church, considering converting, or preparing to be a Godparent or sponsor, we want to help you see the Gifts of the Holy Spirit that are already at work in your life. Confirmation is all about living your Catholic faith and doing so fully, as God created you. Contact Vita to learn more.
Sacramental Certificate or Letter of Good Standing
Have you already received a sacrament at Saint Brigid Parish and require a certificate for confirmation or reception into full communion of the Catholic Church? Or do you need a letter of good standing to be a confirmation sponsor?
