Confirmation
(For those in 10th Grade 2019-2020)

Confirmation Mass is February 22, 2020
What is the purpose of Confirmation requirements?

The purpose of Confirmation requirements is to help your teen understand this very special sacrament and to draw your teen deeper into a relationship with the Lord throughout the Confirmation process. However, we don’t want to add stress to your life!  If your teen has a repeating Sunday afternoon commitment or another problem with the Confirmation requirements, please email Confirmation Coordinator so that we can determine the right path for your teen.

Our application process is now closed. Please contact Elizabeth Piper with questions.
