IMMEDIATE CONFIRMATION PREPARATION
It is the norm in the Archdiocese of Seattle that teens aged 16 or older are to receive their immediate preparation for Confirmation during their Junior year of High School. This, however, does not mean that teens in their Junior year will automatically be enrolled in and subsequently receive Confirmation that year. NO ONE is automatically enrolled or registered in a Confirmation program here at The Proto-Cathedral. Instead, a teen who believes they are well-prepared and ready to enter immediate preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation, must first fill out an APPLICATION for Confirmation. And, in consult with the appropriate Catechist(s), the Pastoral Assistant for Faith Formation, and the parents or legal guardians of the teen, the Pastor shall make a determination as to the readiness of the teen. If the Pastor recommends the teen for Confirmation, then they will be admitted as a candidate for Confirmation.
Teens who are ready to APPLY for Confirmation, must make an appointment to meet with the Pastoral Assistant for Faith Formation. The application will be given to the teen at that time.
Other service opportunities that members will be encouraged to engage in will be:
- Frassati Supper / Frassati Closet / Frassati Cupboard Ministry
- Street Evangelization Teams
- Knights of Columbus events
- Protect Life Crusaders events
- Church Cleaners
- Cemetary Grounds
- Youth Choristers
- Altar Servers
- Acolytes (must be Confirmed)
