To receive the Sacrament of Confirmation teens, grades 9th – 12th need to attend the Wednesday youth group meetings, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. (starting in October) as well as the Thursday meetings (starting in January). Due to Covid-19 classes will be held virtually through Zoom. Students must have access to a computer at attend class and a cell phone to receive text messages with meeting updates. Attendance will be taken at weekly meetings.
Candidates need to be baptized, have received their First Communion and their families need to be registered parishioners of St. Leo’s. A Parent/Teen information meeting will be held in January. Please see the Youth Ministry Calendar under this tab for dates and times.

The Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred by the Bishop in the spring. Each year besides the weekly meetings, the teens perform community service, plan and attend retreats, as well as learn how to live their faith. SLYM is a participant in various parish & community events. Two highlight events are: Attending LA Youth Day and the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC - held every 2 years). At NCYC, the teens join with 28,000 other Catholic teens to celebrate God’s word.
