# Optional Parent Night.  The only consistently effective factor in children practicing their faith is the involvement of their parents in handing on the faith to them.  These parent nights are a way to bridge the gap between Family Formation (where the parents are the primary formators of their children) and Ignite (where parents can often become less involved in the program).  Therefore, while they are optional, parents are encouraged to join us during these nights.  We will offer a lesson for parents based on what the students will be learning along with resources and ways to engage their children with this material at home.


If your teenager is looking for something beyond the normal Ignite program or has been confirmed and is looking for a way to continue growing in their faith, contact Zach about our YDisciple small groups for teens.


Confirmation (10th grade) Schedule

Our confirmation preparation primarily takes place during the Ignite program.  We also have a monthly session with the confirmandi and their sponsor or a parent if their sponsor is unable to attend.  

In addition to those sessions, we have a mandatory morning of reflection the week before they receive the sacrament.  Other than this morning, we do not require that the confirmandi go on a Confirmation Retreat or log service hours.

February 27- Mystagogy (follow up night for confirmandi) 

 All teens are invited to continue attending Ignite.  After the Mystagogy night on February 27, the classes will become  YDisciple small groups where the teens can pick what they would like to go through during their time.  This small group is a more informal setting for the teens to continue to meet and grow in their friendship with each other and their practice of the faith.
