If your teen needs to make up classes for attendance, XLT Atlanta events count as a Make up for the EDGE Nights or Life Nights missed. If you still need to make up nights or if XLT does not fit into your schedule, there are events such as Summer Camp or Search Retreat that can count as for 2 days of attendance make up.
Since your teen attends Catholic School, he/she does not need to attend the Sunday EDGE or Life Nights because they fulfill their Confirmation Catechesis requirement from the School.
Yes. All Teens need to attend one of the Confirmation Retreats because this is the formation aspect of their prep which most teens do not get in the classroom setting.
There are two retreat each year, a Spring and a Fall retreat. This gives teens the option for retreat so that sports and school events and the Confirmation Retreat do not conflict with each other.
While your teen does not need to find a sponsor until the beginning of the fall of their 10th grade year, if your teen may begin looking for a sponsor as early at the 8th grade. The idea of the sponsor is that the sponsor is there to guide his/her teen throughout their faith journey to Confirmation, so the earlier the sponsor is there to help the teen along their teens faith journey, the better.
Yes. Your teen needs to fulfill the service requirements for the Confirmation Program. We do not work in hours but in number of service projects. There are only two a year. The service project could last 20 minutes or over the course of a couple days. Hours do not matter. The idea behind this is that the projects are sponsored by an All Saints Church Ministry and that the teens get immersed in Church life. This also supports Monsignor Marren’s goal for family and Church Community.
