At St. Monica, we welcome teens in grades 9–12 to join us for our two-year preparation process to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. At the same time, we strongly advocate that faith formation is a life-long process and doesn’t end when we receive the sacrament. We prepare our teens by giving them the tools they need to live their lives in faith, long after they receive the sacrament.

 

Please note: You must be baptized and have received First Communion (and provide a certificate for both) to participate.

 

We will meet two Sundays per month, and our program includes presentations, service projects designed by teens, and monthly social nights.

 

Teens who are already confirmed are especially welcome to participate as peer leaders to help facilitate small-group discussions and activities.

This year we are using "One8 Confirmation: A LifeTeen Curriculum," a dynamic and interactive program for teens. Each week will cover a different topic, and utilize the "Gather, Proclaim, Break, Send" format.

 

Please save the date of September 17, 2017 for the Parent Information Meeting!
We will meet at 2:30pm in the Grand Pavilion.

 

Our first meeting for PARENTS AND TEENS will be October 1, 2017.

Please join us for the 1:15pm Mass,
we will meet directly after in the Grand Pavilion.

 

 


Financial assistance is available for registered parishioners.

 

 

Please note: All volunteers who work with children and teens in any capacity at St. Monica are required by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to complete the VIRTUS Training session, “Protecting God’s Children,” and be fingerprinted with a background check. They cannot enter a classroom as a primary leader or catechist until this process is completed.  This includes all volunteers and catechists in our Religious Education Program and our Confirmation program for teens.

If you are planning to be confirmed in May 2018 and have a conflict with the dates of our retreat, it is important that you notify the coordinators immediately for alternate arrangements.

Need Financial Assistance?

 

Our program budget is based on an amount of $164 (Level 1) and $166 (Level 2) per teen. We understand that some families are unable to pay this amount all at once, and some are only able to afford a portion of this fee. We ask that you consider what you are able to commit to paying between now and May 2018 so that we can plan our budget.

Please note:  Only registered parishioners are eligible for financial assistance.
