April 2021 (Online Event)

Prologue:

(All online events require a parent and/or sponsors participation)

     Over the course of our preparations for the Sacrament of Confirmation there has been an underlying theme to everything we do – we have been constantly revisiting and learning about what it means to be a holy disciple of Christ.

Let’s be honest… the words “disciple” and “holy” can be intimidating. When we think of disciples we probably think of people who were way better at praying, sharing their faith, and being bold than we are. When we think of being holy, our next thought is likely that we don’t have the time or energy to put into being a “holy” person. I mean, don’t they just pray all day?

But being holy isn’t about checking off tasks on a Catholic “to-do list”; being holy is something that should be the foundation of everything we do. You can be holy when you are doing schoolwork, or when you are out with your friends. You can also be holy while playing sports or music, or while spending time with your family.

Being holy is the call that Christ gives to everyone. It is called the “universal vocation.”

Let’s get started!
