Teen Confirmation & Youth Ministry

St. Denis Confirmation & Youth Ministry is back in-person! We are happy to announce that incoming and returning high school teens in our program will enjoy in-person sessions to grow in faith and prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Sacramental Prep is a 2 year process. Limited space is available for students needing an online option due to medical concerns. 

Our ultimate goal is for our teens to develop a close, personal relationship with Jesus Christ! We offer dynamic sessions and events that create friendships and a sense of strong community. We will explore scripture, catechism and church traditions to inform and support our teens’ daily lives. Catechists and ministry leaders will accompany our teens and we encourage families to be part of their spiritual journey.

Our program is designed for High School teens, ages 14-17. Students age 18 or over are referred to our parish Adult Confirmation Program.

When Jesus washed the feet of His Disciples the night of the Last Supper, He modeled for us our call to serve. Students will complete ministry and community service hours as part of their sacrament preparation. Alternatives to in-person service opportunities will be offered as needed.

Our program is fully funded by registration fees. Youth Ministry activities and events are funded by donations. We plan to offer as many fellowship opportunities for our teens and welcome any donations, both material and monetary. Donations can be made on our parish PayPal or paid by cash, check or credit card to our Pastoral Office. Indicate your donation is for St. Denis Confirmation & Youth Ministry. Volunteers are also welcome as office and classroom aides and chaperones. Please complete our St. Denis CYM Volunteer Application.
