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.
