MS-YM Sacrament Prep

Our St Simon Middle School Youth Ministry (MS-YM) faith formation program is our Confirmation preparation process.

All St Simon Youth expecting to be Confirmed (typically 8th graders), including St Simon School students, should plan on:

  • Active participation in the bi-weekly MS-YM or HS-YM faith formation and fellowship groups.
  • Active participation in the monthly confirmation preparation lessons (either during MS-YM session or a make-up session or HS session via Zoom during the week).
  • Journaling during the faith journey
  • Completion of service hours (service done for charitable organizations outside of the St Simon community are accepted in meeting this requirement).
  • Holding one to two scripted conversations about their faith journey with their sponsor.
  • Having a “walk and talk” session with a St Simon Priest
  • Attending a Confirmation Retreat in March
  • Celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation – typically in late April or May.
