The Confirmation team and I are looking forward to sharing this journey of faith with you and your family. We are very excited that you have chosen to receive this sacrament. We are all praying for you and we all hope this year will be a time of great spiritual growth.
During this journey, you will be given the opportunity to learn more about your Catholic faith and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “Preparing for Confirmation should lead the Christian (you) toward a friendship and union with Christ and the Holy Spirit.” So get ready for a wonderful journey.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us or any of the catechist.

Confirmation “Year 3” Student Information
The process of preparing for Confirmation culminates during the third year of participation. To ensure you have completed your commitments, please click the following link. It will give you more information about your final projects, including the writing of a saint paper and picking a sponsor.
Confirmation is our yes to being “Christ Like”, and we must reflect Christ in our actions. Therefore, we journey with those preparing for Confirmation in serving our “neighbor” as Christ served. We ask our teens to think outwardly by paying attention to those who are hurting and struggling. Then we give of our time and talents to help those in need. God calls us to serve and we say, “Here I am, Lord!” It is our hope that our teens receive the Sacrament asking how can I be of service to my parish and the community at large.
Guidelines & Requirements:
- All confirmation candidates will be responsible for a total of 20 Hours of service due at the end of their third year. It is suggested that students finish at least five hours after their first year. It is suggested that students finish at least 10 hours by the completion of their second year. It is the student’s responsibility to sign in and out at service events, so hours can be recorded by the coordinator.
- If a student is participating in service projects outside of our program, then they must turn in this service hours sheet. We will only take up to 10 hours from other programs as we want each candidate to serve with their fellow classmates in an effort to foster community.
- Offsite service hours should reflect work done beyond the usual chores and duties done at home or regular service done for school activities and or clubs/sports.
Examples would include: Lector, Altar Server, Usher/Greeter, Religious Education Aide, Church Cleaners or feeding the homeless, reading to seniors, volunteering at a shelter, library, or city program, etc. to name a few.
Online Make-Up Session
As a way to ensure your student does not fall behind due to absences we have created an online program that will allow your student to make-up a maximum of three missed classes. Please note: this is not intended to replace in-person learning. Before you make-up a class please contact the office to ensure this option is available for your student.
