Your parish will need flexible ways to prepare youth for Confirmation this fall. We are excited to announce our updated resources for an online approach to sacramental preparation for Confirmation! Each youth session is designed for an online Zoom gathering with your youth and include a session outline, PowerPoint presentation, and supporting materials. The new approach also includes a parent/sponsor session and youth retreat. It is what you need for your planning this upcoming year!


Subscribing to Youth Ministry Access grants you access to all this content and much more! You will find materials for catechetical formation, youth evangelization, youth retreats, service projects, and so much more.

What's Included in Youth Ministry Access?

Preparing young people for the sacrament of Confirmation is not about attending sessions and meetings. It's about young people encountering Christ, engaging the Church, and discovering their personal vocation. Many ministry leaders may already be considering how to energize and enhance your current process for preparing youth for Confirmation. Many may also just be wondering where you can find easy-to-use and reliable materials to help form young disciples in preparation of this sacrament.

Youth Ministry Access is a robust resource to help you in your journey of accompanying youth in growing in faith and discipleship! Youth Ministry Access utilizes three movements to prepare young people for the sacrament of Confirmation: Encounter with Christ, Formation in Discipleship, and Equipped to Respond. In your subscription, you gain access to retreats, service projects, gathered youth sessions, and more. Sample session available below:
