Confirmation Faith Formation Classes begin Sunday, September 17th.

Classes are held on Sundays from 4:15-5:45 PM (prior to the 6:00 PM Mass) for 7th graders.

Our Lady of the Black Hills uses the curriculum, Chosen, published by Ascension Press, as directed  by the Diocese of Rapid City.

We utilize many teaching models to engage the youth such as large group gatherings and games, small group discussion, retreats, service projects and prayer. We have dedicated Catechists who are themselves engaged in the faith life of the Church and enjoy sharing their faith story with the youth.
