Confirmation

For our Sacramental Preparation programs, the youth need to be enrolled in two programs:
the sacramental preparation program AND regular faith formation via our parish faith formation program OR a Catholic school.

Our Confirmation program is Saint Mary’s Press’ Called to Mercy program. Called to Mercy: Confirming Young People for a Mission of Witness combines the best of all learning experiences and opportunities, tapping the strength and appeal of online learning modules with the power of interspersed, gathered, face-to-face (Zoom) sessions and a retreat experience.

Confirmation typically occurs in our parish in the 8th grade. High school students are welcome to participate also. Again, all candidates must be registered for Confirmation sacrament preparation in addition to enrollment in a Catholic school OR the parish Faith Formation program.

The Confirmation program starts in October. Once registered, the youth will receive their calendar of individual lessons along with each lesson’s due date. When one lesson is finished, the next lesson is unlocked. Group calendar follows:
