[Lumen Gentium 11]
"[The baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church by the sacrament of Confirmation, and the Holy Spirit endows them with special strength so that they are more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith, both by word and by deed, as true witnesses of Christ."
Discipleship Family Ministry
At St. Eugene, following the guidelines of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, the 2 year journey towards Confirmation is part of our high school Discipleship Family Ministry. During that time, surrounded by their peers, students in 9th & 10th grades form small communities of faith where they break open the Word of God in Scripture, study and reinforce the teachings of the Church, share their experiences of God in their lives and participate in worship and adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.
The first Wednesday of the month is open to candidates and their families and includes a dynamic speaker and time for Adoration, Praise and Worship. Other Wednesdays during the month provide opportunities for catechesis, games, small group sharing and service.
Candidates meet on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 PM. The sessions begin in September with breaks that coordinate with the regular school year calendar. Regular class attendance is important as it helps foster relationships within the small community of faith. Additionally, the Diocese requires one retreat per year as well as 10 service hours per year. If a candidate misses more than 3 classes in one year, than that year may need to be repeated.
Candidates MUST attend Sunday Mass each week and are encouraged to read their Bibles each day as part of their daily prayer life.
REGISTRATION for Year 1 takes place on or before the first night of class. Year 1 Classes begin the first Wednesday in September. Year 1 parents must attend the first class with their children. Meetings are presented in both English and Spanish. To be eligible to enroll, youth must have either attended RE classes for the past 2 years, attended high school RE classes or attended Catholic school. Youth who do not meet this requirements will be enrolled in high school RE and begin the Confirmation 2 year Preparation Process the following year.

ST. EUGENE'S Discipleship Family Ministry, has been formed to guide high school students as they journey in their faith through high school. During this time they may choose to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. It is our hope that you and your child will participate fully in the years to come.

To be eligible to enroll, youth must have either attended RE classes for the past 2 years, attended high school RE classes or attended Catholic school.
