Mandatory Student/ Parent Meeting September 13, 2016 630pm in Church.
Confirmation is about becoming part of and building up a Community of Faith. Young adults in Our Lady of Fatima’s Confirmation Program will be given the opportunity and privilege to publicly accept the gift of faith and grace they received in the Sacrament of Baptism and/or affirm or delay their decision to live out a commitment to Jesus and the Catholic Church founded upon the rock of Peter. The Confirmation Formation Process will seek to challenge the Confirmandi (Confirmation Candidates) to answer the question Jesus poses to all disciples – namely, “Who do you say that I am?” They will be challenged to explore the impact such a decision will have upon their lives and the lives of their families, friends, and even the world. Further, we will affirm how Jesus instituted One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church whose mission is to bring “Good News” to a fallen world. We will endeavor to train, equip, and challenge our candidates to live as Soldiers of Christ and bring “good news” to a world that is desperate for a Savior and the truth that will set us all free. Age: Candidates will ordinarily be Baptized Catholics, 16 years of age, and/or a Junior in High School, and willing to commit to the process outlined in Fatima Confirmation Policy.
