For teens to be able to participate in Youth Ministry, which includes Life Teen Events and High School Connect Groups, they must fill out a liability form.  Youth Ministry is a free program provided by the parish for teens to have an encounter with Christ in the community.

High School Confirmation and First Communion Forms

At SVDP, our process of preparing teens for Confirmation is a minimum of 2 years of formation, projects, and inspiration through our mentors, meetings, events, and retreats.  The first year (Beginning Year) events is the Alpha Program, where teens explore the foundational truths of Catholic Christianity.  The Final Year will be a combination of teachings and programs from various sources. For Calendars and information about requirements, scroll below.

Here you will find all Forms for Confirmation and Requirements.  Towards the bottom are any registration forms available for Retreat Events.  When registering for Confirmation, please turn in c ofopies Baptismal and First Communion Certificates to the Parish Office. For teens who have not yet received First Communion, they will be prepared during their Confirmation Preparation.

If you are in your Final Year of Confirmation Preparation,  email RG Garcia, the youth minister for the registration link for Final Year of Confirmation Preparation.

For questions regarding Registration, Fees, or Sacrament Certificates, Contact Eliut Sanchez at reled@svdphb.org or Call (714) 842-3000 ext. 114.


First Communion Requirements

Teens will be required to attend extra sessions to prepare to receive First Communion, during their Final Year of Confirmation Preparation.  We encourage teens who are preparing to receive First Communion to attend Sunday Mass faithfully during their formation.

Update 6.17.21: Sessions for First Communion will be on Thursday Afternoons.  Email RG at youth@svdphb.org if you have any questions.

Service Projects

The Sacrament of Confirmation calls us to serve others as Christ did.  Before the Last Supper, Jesus washed the feet of his 12 disciples, modeling for us Christian Service.  He then says….

 “I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.” John 13:15

Each year, while preparing for Confirmation, teens are required to do 3 Service Projects to get familiar with “Christian Service.”  Our hope is that in these 2 years of preparation, you will find a sense of purpose in serving others, and discover how God is calling you to serve others.
