World Youth Day USA Prayer 
God our Father, be with us  on our pilgrim journey of faith. Give us the grace and courage  to step forward in faith and hope  on the road ahead.
Open our eyes to see your face  in all those we encounter. Open our ears to hear your voice  in those who are often ignored. Open our hearts that we might be  faithful disciples of mercy and truth.
Transform us. Empower us to give of ourselves to the poor;  to welcome the lost;  to forgive those who hurt us;  to comfort those who suffer  and are marginalized.
Bless those who travel  from the United States of America  to Panamá, to join the universal  Church for World Youth Day. Bless, too, those who celebrate stateside,  united in faith and joy.
Like the disciples who journeyed  up the mountain to witness the Transfiguration, may this experience be  an encounter that strengthens us  for our work in the world.
Through the intercession of Mary,  the Immaculate Conception,  patroness of our nation, may we be worthy witnesses of our faith, humble representatives of our country,  and inspired missionaries bringing peace, hope, and mercy into our communities.
We ask all this through Christ Our Lord.  Amen.

Sacrament of Confirmation

Confirmation preparation is a two-year process within the high school years. This two-year formation process is based on the principles set forth in the National Conference of Catholic Bishops’ document Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry. Our Confirmation process is not only preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation, we focus on the importance of youth becoming active members of their Catholic Church Community.  Youth are expected meet every other Tuesday from October – May.
