Welcome teens, parents, and families to Saint Brigid Parish! Whether you are new to the Parish or have been a longtime parishioner we are excited to encounter, love, serve Jesus and the World with you! Navigating the teenage years can be joyful and challenging. Saint Brigid Parish offers various opportunities to engage teens in their Catholic faith and friendships throughout the year. While we have seen many changes the past year with COVID, we are excited to host youth group in person again starting this Fall 2021! Teen Confirmation Prep will resume in person in November 2021. We look forward to meeting with you soon! If you have any questions, please reach out to our Youth Coordinator Kayla Johnson.
Teens, grades 9-12, are welcome to join us for fellowship, fun, food, music, bonfires, Scripture study, and other social experiences! Youth Group will resume on Tuesday nights in September 2021. Stay tuned for the updated Youth Group Calendar. Youth group is supplemental to confirmation prep, but not required. It is a great way for teens to engage in their community and grow in faith and fellowship.
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 three quarterly retreats and participate in small group series during Lent. Teens seeking the Sacrament of Confirmation can register online at the end of August to join the Confirmation Preparation Process and join our formation sessions. Contact Kayla Johnson for updates and information.
In the Diocese of San Diego, the minimum age for receiving the Sacrament of 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 has not been confirmed at the ordinary time and we certainly welcome them too. Whether you are 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.
