Confirmation

Confirmation Preparation in our parish is a ten year program. Students attending Catholic schools are assimilated into our program after February vacation of the 9th and 10th grades. Confirmation Preparation includes attendance and participation in all Religious Education classes and meetings, community worship, 15 hours of community service (for each of the last two years of their formal Rel. Education - Gr. 9 & 10), selecting a sponsor, choosing a Confirmation name, participation in a Confirmation retreat, the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, participation in the rehearsal for the Rite of Confirmation, participation in the Confirmation liturgy, and an interview with our pastor. Confirmation must not be seen as an end of our Religious Education; rather, it requires continued involvement in the life of our Church and our parish.

High school students already confirmed are invited to monthly gatherings to further develop their relationships with Our Lord. These gatherings are informal and include a light meal. Times and dates are included in our parish's weekly bulletin. High School students already confirmed are also welcome to participate in any/all of our service projects and service weeks as well as to discern a ministerial role in our parish.
