Confirmation

Confirmation is the third Sacrament of Initiation in the Catholic Church.  (Baptism is the first Sacrament of Initiation and Eucharist is the second.)  Confirmation establishes the beginning, NOT the end or “graduation,” of a life of full participation and responsibility in the Church.  This Sacrament is received by our students in after the completion of grade level 6.

Requirements

  • Preparation – Confirmation is a two year process, beginning with grade level 5.
  • Saint Report – Selection of name and completion of Saint report in grade level 5.
  • Service Hours – Service hours (minimum total of 20 hours) are required before Confirmation.  The Community Service Record and the Report on Service Activity should be submitted to the DRE.
  • Retreat – Will be scheduled in the Fall following completion of grade level 6.  Attendance is mandatory.
  • Sponsors – Must be a registered Catholic and in good standing.  Please remind sponsors that the Sponsor Certification Form must be completed by their parish and returned as soon as possible but no later than the Fall before Confirmation.
  • Confirmation Portfolio – A project that summarizes the confirmation candidate’s preparation for the sacrament.  This will be scheduled in the Fall before confirmation.
