This is a program designed to prepare your child to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. It is a two year process, and children must register each year. All 7th and 8th graders should be registered for Confirmation Preparation through Holy Spirit Parish. If your child attends St. Joseph School, please notify Allison via email: email@example.com, as your child will be exempt from the FIRST YEAR ONLY of Sacramental Prep Lessons. Classes are monthly on Wednesdays and Sundays (required attendance at ONE session per month) from 6:00-8:00pm. View a full calendar of meeting dates here.
We highly encourage all 7th and 8th graders to attend Youth Group which is every Wednesday from 6:00-8:00pm (aside from those dedicated to Confirmation Preparation).
Third Session: Wednesday, November 14th OR Sunday, November 18th from 6:00-8:00pm
Entrance Meeting with Youth Minister: THIS FALL, candidates in their first year of Confirmation Prep are asked to have a family meeting with Allison. Please see Confirmation Year ONE document below for more information. Go to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/508044cafaf28a5f94-entrance to schedule your meeting.
Sponsor Forms due: October 28th Candidates in their second year of preparation are required to select a Confirmation Sponsor. Those forms are due no later than Sunday October 28th (scroll down for downloadable forms). The Verification form is only necessary if the Sponsor is NOT a Holy Spirit parishioner. Please turn in a physical copy to the main office drop box (NEW; on the left parish office door) or email a scanned copy to Allison at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall Retreat Day: November 3rd 9am to Noon Candidates in their second year and their Sponsor are asked to come to Holy Spirit for a short morning retreat. We will begin in Spirit Hall with prayer and faith-based conversation, then we will venture out into the community to serve God’s people. If a sponsor is not able to attend, a parent may stand in their place. Contact Allison for more information.
