Confirmation is offered for juniors in high school and is celebrated in late April or early May. In junior year, in addition to attending classes, the Confirmation Candidate, Sponsor and Parents must meet these other requirements:


• Candidate selects a Sponsor and both Candidate and Sponsor attend a Candidate/Sponsor preparation session in October
• Candidate attends a weekend retreat geared towards Confirmation
• Candidate performs a minimum of 5 parish and 5 community service hours
• Candidate participates in a 20-minute interview with the Pastor or the Associate Director of Discipleship and Evangelization
• Candidate writes a letter to the confirming Bishop
• Candidate, Sponsor and Parents attend a Confirmation Candidate/Sponsor/Parent reflection session in the week prior to Confirmation
• Candidate and Sponsor attend Confirmation rehearsal prior to Confirmation
• Candidate and Sponsor attend the Confirmation Mass/Rite


Juniors who attended public school for grades 9 & 10, and have not been enrolled in the Christian Formation program for one or both of these years must meet with the Associate Director of Discipleship and Evangelization and/or Pastor to discuss their level of faith formation/understanding. They will then arrange a monitored, self-taught program for making up the missed work, and enroll in the parish Religious Education grade 11 program AND the Confirmation preparation program.
