ROC (Rite of Confirmation) at St. Mary’s is our 2 year Confirmation preparation program. The program is run by our youth minister, Kevin Rosa, and a team of ROC Core volunteers who run small groups, help give teachings, and organize prayer experiences. This program is for every 9th and 10th grader, including Catholic high school students.
ROC uses catechetical teachings, media, prayer opportunities, and small group discussions to teach teens about the Catholic faith and continue their formation into adult Christians. Some of the topics that are covered at ROC nights are personal prayer, the Mass and the Eucharist, morality, the Father, Christmas and the Incarnation, Sainthood, the Theology of the Body, and more.
Our Confirmation program is centered on Jesus in the Eucharist. We try to reinforce the importance of the centrality of the Eucharist in the Catholic faith by strongly encouraging the teens to attend Mass devoutly and by offering opportunities for Eucharistic Adoration.
We meet every other Monday in the St. Mary’s Life House in the lower church.
The freshmen class meets from 6:15 – 7:15 PM.
The sophomore class meets from 7:30 – 8:30 PM
