I would like more information about Youth Ministry.

I would like more information about Confirmation Preparation.

Confirmation is received in the spring of the 8th grade year. The preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a three-year educational process beginning in the 6th grade and culminating in the Celebration of Confirmation in the 8th grade. The preparation will occur via the scheduled Sunday Youth Ministry meetings indicated in red (please see the CYMNK Calendar for reference). Youth Ministry will continue to meet on every second Sunday and fourth Sunday of the month, with a few exceptions due to retreats, mission trips, holidays, and intergenerational/all-parish events. Use the links below for more information and to register.
