    What does the program look like? 

    The St. Odilia Confirmation program is a two year program starting in 7th grade and ending the spring of 8th grade.  Programming runs weekly for the candidates on Wednesday nights from late September to early May.  The Confirmation preparation process also partners with parents by holding Family Faith nights where students have their normal class and parents participate in a night of faith through speakers, continuing education, prayer experiences and service opportinities.  Some of the Family Faith nights are on a Wednesday night and others are on a Sunday night. At the bottom of the page there is a full list of dates for classes and Family Faith nights.  

    What is used for the Curriculum? 

    The St. Odilia Confirmation program integrates the Chosen curriuculum of Ascension Press, a weekly Bible study, and Lifeteen's Edge program.  Classes combine both large group presentations, small group discussion and occasional guest speakers to give a diversity of learning experiences to best prepare each candidate. Through Chosen, Bible studies, and Edge the St. Odilia Confirmation program gives a comprehensive intellectual and spiritual preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation.  We strive to deepen each candidate's relationship with God through the Study of Scripture, Tradition, and the Teachings of the Church that they may become lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ and His Church.   

    Is there an online option? 

     For those who do not feel comfortable with having their child attend in person classes, there is an online option.  We are still in the process of contructing an effective online option and there will be more information on this soon.
