Confirmation Preparation

With Duxbury moving back into the yellow zone, we will be resuming our in person classes. There are no Confirmation Classes on February 7. Our next 2 Confirmation Classes will be held on February 28 and March 21.

The Program

If you have been with us for a year or more, you are aware that at Holy Family we are very passionate about forming families in faith together. Those preparing for Confirmation, we will be continuing that journey in the 2020-2021 year! This upcoming year will need to be a little different as Commonwealth and Archdiocesean protocols change, but we are still committed to providing a high quality preparation program for your teens!

We have made the decision to offer 2 separate tracks for our Confirmation Formation this year - one that will meet in person and one virtually.

The in person option will meet once or twice a month, on Sunday evenings. We have adjusted our normal times slightly to allow time for cleaning between the 9th and 10th grade sessions.

  • Confirmation 1 (9th grade) will continue to meet from 5:00-6:30pm as normal.

    The in-person option for 9th grade is currently at our capacity. Please sign up for the virtual option and contact Matt if you would like to be added to a waiting list for the in person option, if space opens up.

  • Confirmation 2 (10th grade) will now meet from 7:00-8:30pm to allow extra time for cleaning between sessions.

The virtual option will follow a program called Decision Points by Dynamic Catholic. It will consist of videos, readings and questions that will be completed at home by the students following an outline created by Matt. We will have a virtual "check in" once a month to highlight and discuss some of the most important parts of each of the videos and readings. Parents will need to pick up a book from the office before the beginning of classes, pick up dates and times will be announced in September.

Please indicate on the sign up form which option you would like your student to participate in. If you change your mind in the future, please contact Matt in the Faith Formation Office to switch to the other option.

As a note, if Archdiocesean or Commonwealth guidelines change, the in person option may be required to change to virtual at any point throughout the year. We will continue to safely offer both options as long as it is permitted by health regulations.

We do not have any retreat options scheduled at this time, but would love to be able to add those back into the program in the Spring if regulations allow for it.
