I don’t see anyhting about Confirmation in this catagory, but seeing as how it’s one of the sacraments, I decided to put this question here. I am 17 years old and should be attending Confirmation class but I’m not. I took some Confirmation classes when I was 15, and I didn’t really see what the classes had to do with Confirmation. The classes obviously were related to God but they stressed more “togetherness” than the reason why we needed to get Confirmed. We mostly played games relating to Christianity or whatever and had “Retreats” to bring the classes together. One day that brought in this huge rock saying that it was Jesus, and we all got our own “special rock to accompany you on your journey through Confirmation.” I found the classes rather silly and a waste of time.
Me and my family to a new state when, I started Confirmation classes again, and again we were given rocks. I decided to quit Confirmation classes and wait 'til I’m 18 to do RCIA and get confirmed as an adult because I’d get to be in a serious class where we wouldn’t have to play a bunch of silly games. Is this ok? Or should I be attending the Confirmation classes for teens?
