We are excited about our Confirmation preparation program entitled, CHOSEN, here at St. Edmond.
It is a two year program beginning with the 10th graders. It is a special program of classes and events that serve as “immediate preparation” for the reception of Confirmation. The 10th grade formation is under the direction of Mrs. Terri Frederick and her team members and the eleventh grade formation is under the direction of Mr. Clark Alderman and his team members.

"The most effective catechetical program for adolescents are integrated into a comprehensive program of pastoral ministry for youth that includes catechesis, community life, evangelization, justice and service, leadership development, pastoral care, and prayer and worship. Such programs aim to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today; to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community; and to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person." (National Directory for Catechesis, p. 201)
