Confirmation is a two year program for middle school youth.  Class begins in the fall of 2015 with Confirmation Mass in early spring of 2017.  Our Lady of the Black Hills uses the curriculum, Chosen, published by Ascension Press, as directed by the Diocese of Rapid City.  We work hard to use 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 youth.

Below are resources for parents and sponsors.  Please feel free to contact the Coordinator of Confirmation, Teresa Thompson at for more information.
