Youth Confirmation

ROOTED Confirmation Program

St. Mary offers a program for youth (grades 9-12) to prepare for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation. This program, called ROOTED, is comprised of traditional classes, small group bible studies, and Works of Mercy. Classes will impart basic catechetical knowledge and the other meetings will facilitate growth in prayer, understanding of the scriptures, and discipleship formation.
