In the Diocese of Lafayette, the Sacrament of Confirmation is typically celebrated in the 11th grade. Classes begin each year in the fall and are held on Thursday evenings.
The year round Youth Group is led by a team of Ragin’ Cajun Catholic College Students and provides dynamic teachings and experiences in a casual setting for high school students in grades 9-12. Following Confirmation, students may apply to be Senior Team Members of the Youth Group where they will have hands-on experience in youth ministry and leadership training.
The Family Catechism Program at Our Lady of Wisdom (also known as "CCD" or the Confraternity of Catholic Doctrine) is a great opportunity for spiritual formation for the entire family.
Catechism (religious education and sacramental preparation) classes are held on the first Saturday of each month for public school, private school, and homeschool children in grades 1-6, as well as their parents. Students in grades 7 & 8 meet on the second Thursday of each month.
Parent formation is an important part of our Family Catechism Program. Join us on the first Saturday of every month following 8:30 AM Mass for a spiritual teaching and an informal discussion led by one of our priests!
