Every year we pair each of our confirmation students with an adult (or couple) who can serve as their guide. The role of a guide is simple: be an enthusiastic participant. You also would be required to attend at least 2 of the 10 weeks (Sep - Nov) of Confirmation. You'll get to see first-hand the developing spiritual lives of our youth. Interested?
