Confirmation Program

At St. Joseph Catholic Church – Honey Creek, we have a two year sacramental confirmation program for 9th – 11th grade. The program is taught both at home and at the church. There is a $35 fee each year for the confirmation program. We require:

  • Teens to be actively enrolled in High School Faith Formation (Wednesday nights or Sunday Evenings) attending at least 7 sessions each semester. Missed classes can be viewed online and assignments will be due by the next class.
  • Teens support the community with Community Service (at least 20 hours each year)
  • Sponsor turns in assignments with their Confirmandi
  • Attend one Saturday day retreat and the weekend retreat during Year II.
  • And most importantly, attend Sunday Mass


I encourage you, your teen, and the Confiramtion sponsor  to view and discuss the videos and the “Decision Point” (http://dynamiccatholic.com/confirmation/view-program/). There is also a free app for android and idevices called, “Decision Point.” Assignments will be assigned from Decision Point with due dates.
