As the Director of Catechetical Ministry at times I really question Youth Confirmation. Let us be honest here folks, most teens are attending classes because mom,dad,grandparents,etc are telling them they must be confirmed. This past March during our YC Retreat, I recall asking all the Confirmandi, if they were receiving the sacrament on their accord or because of their parents? Out of 90 students, only THREE told me they wanted to do it based on their own accord. I have noticed this for the past several years,hence my reasons for questioning YC Confirmation.
In other words, I am not a big supporter of it and never have been. I was confirmed as an infant and I favor the original order: baptism,confirmation and eucharist.
