Confirmation for Students


Confirmation 2020 has been rescheduled for Thursday, July 23rd and Thursday August 6th has been added to accommodate families who are unable to attend in July due to schedule conflicts. Please select a date for your family and let Sarah know at [email protected] as soon as possible. Thanks!

Per your feedback and to allow for a safe environment during this time we ask that you limit attendance to immediate family and your teen's sponsor.

Just as with daily and Sunday Masses, we also ask that all who attend wear masks and maintain a distance of 6 ft from those not in your household. This is for your safety and the safety of others.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sarah at [email protected]

Confirmation 2021: You should have received an email with some basic information re: Confirmation formation for the 2020-2021 school year. If you have not received an email and feel that you should have, please email Sarah at [email protected]


Confirmation formation for students takes place as early as the fall of the 9th grade, though it is open to any student in high school, and is focused on spiritual development.

The eligibility of each student is determined by

  • Completion of the elementary Parish School of Religion
  • Appropriate spiritual development and,
  • Regular practice of the Catholic Faith.

Regular attendance at Sunday Mass, reception of the Sacraments and a willingness to continue to participate in religious education are major factors in the assessment of readiness for the Sacrament.  Students are strongly encouraged to be part of the Youth Ministry Program (sALt) in the Parish, though it is NOT mandatory.  Confirmation is not the end of religious education (AKA Confirmation is not graduation!).   Rather, it is part of a process of life-long learning, commitment and community.  This process of formation should continue throughout the high school years and throughout one’s entire life.
