Welcome to Confirmation Preparation at Assumption for Teens!
While teens in our community attend various high school, Assumptions Confirmation program provides a place for them to come together and to learn, to share, and to build a faith community. And, despite the restrictions placed on community gatherings before us with the Coronavirus, we will continue to do so. As we start this year, we will use an online platform, Zoom, for our Confirmation gatherings. An access code will be sent out in the weekly email. To receive the weekly email, please register for Confirmation using the "Faith Formation Registration" link in the links section of this page. Once you are registered you will receive an email acknowledging your registration (please give me time to process the registrations). We will continue to use the online platform until restrictions are lifted and we can all gather together in the Small Hall.
We prepare teens for Confirmation in accordance with Canon Law, guidelines established by the Diocese of Oakland in 2010 (reaffirmed in 2015), and our parish Catholic traditions. Teens who would like to prepare for Confirmation at Assumption participate in an intensive preparation completed in one year.
