Pre confirmation, confirmation I and II
Sharon Kolosseus, Confirmation Coordinator, Youth Minister
We extend a warm welcome to our Confirmation candidates, their sponsors and parents! This is a two-year faith formation process for all students, but the preparation process can vary depending on individual circumstances. The best way for parents to prepare their child to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation is to model active participation in the Sacraments, especially weekly Mass attendance. Any questions about our program should be directed to Sharon, Confirmation Coordinator
Curriculum for Pre Confirmation - If your child has not attended Religious Education classes consistently after 1st Holy Communion, you should sign them up for this class.
The focus of the second year of sacramental preparation is:
Confirmation Sponsor Selection and Sponsor Sessions. Confirmation II students will choose a sponsor that will journey with them throughout the year, be a witness at the Rite of Confirmation Mass, and support them in their life-long faith journey. Guidelines for choosing a sponsor are provided along with the form that must be completed by each candidate.
Confirmation Retreat. Each candidate for the Sacrament of Confirmation is required to participate in a Confirmation Retreat. A retreat is scheduled for our second year candidates and they will be asked to sign up for the retreat in advance. If a candidate is unable to attend this parish retreat, they may attend a Confirmation retreat at their own expense at another parish and must inform the Confirmation Coordinator.
Confirmation Name Selection. Each candidate chooses a Confirmation name. Candidates will receive guidelines for the name selection.
Confirmation Candidate Information. Each Confirmation II candidate must submit this form by the indicated due date.
