Confirmation of Youth

All youth should be registered for religious education or in the parish school to complete their Confirmation preparation.

CONFIRMATION MASS  On Monday, November 9, 2020 at 7:00 pm, Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the Archdiocese for Military Services will confirm youth of our parish who have been prepared to receive the Sacrament.  Youth and their sponsors should plan to be in Quinn Hall that evening by 6:15 pm.

REHEARSAL for CONFIRMATION will be held Sunday, Nov. 8, at 6:30 pm in the church.

RETREAT Our Confirmation retreat date is TBD.  Information will be posted here as it becomes available.

CONFIRMATION BOOKLET 2020 contains all the content a candidate should know by the time of Confirmation, as well as each of the required forms.  The required forms are also available at links below.

SPONSOR AFFIDAVITS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MAY 1.  Click HERE  for our parish’s SPONSOR AFFIDAVIT 2020.  We will accept the form or letter generated by the sponsor’s parish.

APOSTOLIC SERVICE  Since preparation for Confirmation is an apprenticeship to the Christian life, all candidates should complete 20 hours of apostolic service, which is based on the Spiritual & Corporal Works of Mercy.

  • The APOSTOLIC PROPOSAL is due on May 1.
  • The APOSTOLIC FINAL is due on the first day of CCD for religious ed students, and is assigned as homework in the fall for students of the parish school.
  • Please note that we do NOT require a tracking of hours, rather, a signature of a parent that verifies the service has been completed.
  • Ideas for service may be found HERE.

The Saint Report is a one-page (typed) paper, with one paragraph summarizing the Saint’s life, and a second paragraph explaining why this particular Saint was chosen.

The PASTOR LETTER (to Fr. Kelly) will be due for all candidates immediately after the retreat, in the fall.  An example of the letter may be found HERE.
