Frequently Asked Questions about Confirmation
Will the Confirmation Program be online due to the recent/current pandemic?
Yes. Due to the current pandemic, Confirmation classes will NOT be onsite at the parish until further notice. Please see our handout regarding Covid-19 and send an email for any questions.
Do I have to be registered at the parish to enroll my child in the Confirmation program?
Families registering for Confirmation and Religious Ed are to be registered members of the parish. Should there be any extenuating circumstances regarding registration, families are to contact Jeny BEFORE trying to register for the Confirmation or Religious Ed program.
Who is eligible to enter the Confirmation Program?
Students must be in 9th, 10th or 11th grade at the start of their two year program. *12th graders who have not yet completed year one of prep for Confirmation, call Jeny for details and see the High School Senior Section in the Confirmation Program Requirements on the Confirmation page. Catholic School Students see next question.
If I attend a Catholic School do I have to complete the full two year program?
Catholic school students may opt out of the first year of Confirmation classes and attend Confirmation 2 ONLY to complete the Confirmation program (1 year). This only applies to Catholic high school students and does NOT apply to high school students who have previously attended Catholic elementary/middle school.
(Must be able to validate current enrollment at local Catholic high school)
Catholic school students must be AT LEAST a sophomore/grade 10 when entering the Confirmation program. (Meaning Catholic School teens need to be at least a sophomore this Fall 2020 to enter into the Confirmation 2 program)
Please see the Confirmation Requirements packet for more detailed information.

Do I have to re-register for 2nd year if I just completed 1st year?
YES, 2nd year students must register online, complete a turn in the UPDATED General Release Form, and read through the Updated Confirmation Requirements packet found on our Confirmation page.
If I am in Catholic School and would like to attend the full 2 year program am I able to do so?
Yes, you are welcome to attend the full program. However, once you have chosen to start with first year, you must complete both years in order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. If you choose this option, then please use the Confirmation 1/new student registration link/form.
What if my child has not yet received Baptism and/or First Holy Communion but is in high school and would like to be Confirmed?
Please indicate this on the online registration form and your child will be placed in a program to receive additional instruction and preparation for First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation (Confession). For unbaptized teens, your child will receive all Sacraments together at a designated time. Teens in need of additional sacraments will receive information regarding the additional preparation in November. It will also be necessary that teens are mentally and spiritually prepared/willing to receive their Sacraments.
