Confirmation for Students


Confirmation for Students

The Diocese of Cleveland, through the Religious Education Office, supports a Confirmation program that is “non-graded” and based on the “readiness” of the individual applicant.  During the high school years, one component of that process is a comprehensive Confirmation Program.  Students of any high school grade level may apply for the Sacrament of Confirmation when they have fulfilled certain requirements and when they, the pastor and their teachers feel they exhibit a “readiness” to take this important step.

The eligibility of each student is determined by

  • Completion of the elementary Parish School of Religion,
  • Faithful participation in the Youth Ministry Program or its equivalent,
  • 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 in the Parish.  Confirmation is not the end of religious education.   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.

We are excited to share that Confirmation 2020 will take place on Pentecost Sunday, May 31st, 2020 with Bishop Perez.
