Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred upon parishioners after proper preparation, usually in the spring of tenth grade. Our Confirmation Program begins in the ninth grade and includes classroom instruction on basic Catholic theology and morality, service projects, and retreats. Preparation continues in the tenth grade where the classroom focus is on finding and taking responsibility for one’s role in the Catholic community. Parishioners who attend Catholic schools are encouraged to attend both years of preparation to engage with same-age peers in our church community, but they are only required to attend the second year of their preparation.

There is one Confirmation retreat in the spring each year. Parishioners preparing for Confirmation are required to attend this retreat.
