Confirmation classes are offered to High School students in their initiation process of the Catholic Church. The students of our parish prepare as a group to receive this Sacrament. They are required to attend classes on a regular basis, generally from September through the spring. In preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation, they must also choose a sponsor, participate in various spiritual and community projects, attend a retreat, meet individually with the Pastor, write a letter of petition to the Bishop, and be committed to continuing the faithful practice and study of the Catholic religion. The Bishop administers the Sacrament during a special Mass in the spring. The Confirmation classes are held every 2-3 years at our parish. The time commitment for the adult leaders will be the same as the students, with additional session planning time.
