The AMHS Confirmation Formation Process prepares Catholic students to complete their initiation in the Church through the Sacrament of Confirmation.
The AMHS Confirmation Formation Process complements students’ experiences of retreats, Religious Studies classes, and service learning in order to strengthen their Catholic identity. With the help of peer leaders, the process encourages small and large group fellowship and reflection, and offers opportunities for communal worship and prayer. Candidates are supported on their faith journey by their Confirmation sponsors, the AMHS faith community, and the Diocese of San Jose.
The Confirmation Formation Process consists of a series of Monday evening meetings aimed at helping the students prepare for the Sacrament. Meetings focus on deepening each individual's Catholic faith by examining the gifts of the Holy Spirit active in their lives, strengthening the faith community, and examining the roles and responsibilities of confirmed members of the Catholic community.
All sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have been baptized and have a desire to be fully initiated into the Catholic community are invited to prepare for and receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
