Confirmation

Cross and Bible

IPRF, forming families of disciples by nourishing them with the Word of God.

   

Current High School Class of 2014:

Confirmation will be scheduled for late October or early November at St Mary Parish with Bishop David Ricken.

Confirmation Connections:

And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind; and it filled the entire house in which they were.  Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them.  And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit.... (Acts 2:2-4a)

Immediate preparation for Confirmation does not begin until 11th grade according to Diocesan Policy.  At St. Mary and St. Joseph parishes immediate preparation begins in January of 11th grade and continues to Confirmation which is usually October of 12th grade.  Many people find it easier and more productive to spend time in the summer preparing for Confirmation when most teens are less busy.
