One Eight Confirmation Program

It’s Transformation, Not Graduation

What is the goal of your parish confirmation preparation? Is it to check off a list before someone leaves the Church “hopefully for a little while” or is it to make lifelong disciples? We believe that the Sacrament of Confirmation is a moment of transformation, not graduation. We designed One Eight, our confirmation program, to empower youth ministers, DREs, and parish priests to form disciples ready to receive a strengthening of the Holy Spirit  through Confirmation.

One Eight has been successfully implemented by thousands of parishes around the United States and across the world. It’s relationally based method puts the responsibility of facilitating discussion and teaching with Core Members because we believe that those that teach the faith should also be the ones at the football game on Friday, lunch at the high school on Wednesday, and the person available to pray with teens after a confirmation session.
