    MISSION STATEMENT

    We seek to partake of the Church's Mission to transform our youth into Christ.


    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Contact Kristi at youthministry@zionsvillecatholic.com for information.

    This program is open to all those in 10th grade and above in the Zionsville community.

    In the Sacrament of Confirmation, candidates are sealed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit by which their Baptism is completed. Since we confirm candidates in their 10th grade year (past the age of reason) there must be a free choice on the part of the candidate to respond to God's grace in this sacrament. However, we keep in mind that this sacrament is primarily about God's choice in confirming you as His adopted son or daughter in Christ.

    While God's grace in the sacraments is a totally free and generous gift, His grace is not irresistible - that is, it does not force itself upon us. Forced or coerced love is never love. Therefore, if grace is going to transform our lives, we must receive it and cooperate with it. To this end, the below requirements are designed to attune the hearts of the candidate to best receive God's grace in the sacrament. We see them as much more than hoops to jump through, and we hope you do as well.


    A Special Note to Parents

    Thank you for supporting our program. More importantly, thank you for the great work you do as parents!

    As primary catechist of your son or daughter, you are more than welcome to take a more active role in youth programing. Otherwise, we will seek to keep you informed on how to continue the conversation at home. If you ever need help, just let us know!

    May God bless you and your family!
