Confirmation 2023-2024

Confirmation: Confirmation is a year long preparation and we welcome those who are receptive to receiving this Sacrament (typically those who are in 7th and 8th grade and high schoolers). Classes will meet approximately two times a month on Sundays, tentatively beginning September, 22nd, 2024.  Our program includes engaging presentations, small group discussions led by high school mentors, prayer and retreat experiences, and meaningful communiity outreach/service projects. Our young people will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation sometime in the Spring of 2025. . 

Please note: The Archdiocese of Detroit requires two years of faith formation for children receiving sacraments. (This means they should be in some form of faith formation classes or at a Catholic School for at least one year prior to beginning Sacramental preparations like Confirmation.) Feel free to reach out to Karen.Hogan@ResurrectionParish.net with questions.
