Virtual Confirmation Program Available for Teens
The 2020-2021 school year brings unique challenges to St. Joseph’s Youth Ministry program as COVID-19 recommended safety precautions are taken into consideration. As we seek to protect the most vulnerable among us, St. Joseph Catholic Church has decided to offer virtual Confirmation preparation this year. We will be using Dynamic Catholic’s Confirmation Program, Decision Point. Students will be asked to view all the curriculum videos and complete the workbook. Additional requirements include attending a virtual retreat, service hours, and follow-up mentor calls. To receive the Confirmation Information Packet and registration form, please email DRE Lynn Langston at LLangston@StJosephAthens.com by Friday, October 9. As a reminder, the Archdiocese of Atlanta requires two consecutive years of Confirmation preparation, and here at St. Joseph you can begin that process in 9th, 10th, or 11th grades. Due to COVID-19, we will grant a gap year for any 2019-2020 Year 1 Students who would prefer to resume Confirmation preparation in-person next year. Questions? Contact Youth Ministers Justin & Megan Estes at 678-977-6999 or HSYG@StJosephAthens.com.
