All students preparing for Confirmation have to complete their preparation in the parish, even if they attend a Catholic High School. It is the responsibility of the parish to prepare students for the sacraments. Since we know that many students have a wealth of knowledge about the faith already, we try to make our program a lot more practical and help them understand how to live as Catholics in the world.

Grade 9 Faith Formation classes will begin the preparation for Confirmation. The Confirmation program is a 2 year preparation program, beginning this fall and receiving Confirmation in the spring of 2021.

We will meet on Sunday nights from 6:00-7:30pm at St. Rita School. Click here to download the 2018-2019 Confirmation class schedule calendar. Throughout the year we will be offering service opportunities for the teens to participate in, and hope that the students will be able to join us as we give back to our community, as well as Youth Ministry nights for the students to have some fun and connect with one another.
