Confirmation 2017-2018

All Confirmation candidates will be working with the Confirmation Program called DECISION POINT by Matthew Kelly, an acclaimed author, speaker and the founder of Dynamic Catholic Institute which is a Cincinnati based non-profit organization. Their mission is to re-energize the Catholic Church in America by developing resources that inspire people to rediscover Catholicism.  

DECISION POINT, as stated on the website “will not only prepare young Catholics for the Sacrament of Confirmation in a dynamic way, but also teach and inspire them to respond and cooperate with God’s grace in all the circumstances of their daily lives, long after their Confirmation has passed.”

St. Thomas School candidates will work on DECISION POINT in school during their religion class.

St. Thomas PREP candidates will attend Monday evening sessions twice a month (see dates below). All Confirmation candidates are strongly encouraged to begin this program with an open heart and a willingness to learn.

Candidates, parents and sponsors are encouraged to download the free DECISION POINT app or visit the DECISION POINT website: to see how exciting the program is.
