About

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 get in touch with Allison via email: allison@holyspiritcatholic.org, as policies regarding participation in the first year of preparation have changed. 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 6:00-7:30pm (aside from those dedicated to Confirmation Preparation). Click here for a full fall youth group schedule.

If you are older than 7th or 8th grade but are seeking information about how to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation…

please contact Allison Steen-Baker or Lori Lewis.

COVID-19 Protocols

Due to the Coronavirus, we have new protocols for the health and safety of all participating in gathered activities at Holy Spirit Parish. Please read them carefully before attending any gathering at the parish.

  • Parents must sign a Health Check-In Form each time their child attends a gathering at Holy Spirit. You may download the form here and fill it out at home, or simply come to the Youth Room door to fill out a form as your child enters the building. Forms and a thermometer will be located just inside the door. Your child will not be allowed to enter their gathering/classroom without this form completed. Note: The adult chaperones are permitted to check temperatures of attendees upon arrival; anyone with a temperature reading above 100.4 will be refused entry and sent home.
  • All persons entering the building (over the age of 2) must wear a mask (covering the nose and mouth) at all times. Persons without a mask will not be permitted to enter the building.
  • Social distancing of 6ft (or more) should be observed at all times between attendees of different households.
  • Participants are required to follow all health and safety protocols posted in the building (e.g., restroom protocols, floor tape for social distancing, etc.)

Holy Spirit Prayer

Use the below prayer in your daily prayer routine to call on the Holy Spirit to strengthen you throughout this time of preparation.

Curriculum and Make Up Work

This year our Curriculum is available through your parish subscription to FORMED.org. This allows parents and sponsors to have access to the videos and content that each candidate will be using in their sessions. Parents & Sponsors – Don’t forget to download the Parent Sheet (directly from FORMED) for your child’s curriculum! It is a FANTASTIC resource for parents/sponsors to follow along, pray, and learn with their child/candidate!
