Confirmation Preparation

Confirmation for 2017 is scheduled to take place April 23rd, 3:00 p.m. at St. Lawrence Church.

Welcme to the St. Mary of the Assumpton Confirmation Program!  Our confirmation program is a two year program (9th &10th grade). We use a variety of program components, which help to lead our students through a clear understanding of the teachings of the Catholic Church, the Sacrament of Confirmation and the mission we are all called to live daily. Classes include guest speakers, service opportunities, small-group discussion and other activities which allows teens to experience:

• A deepening in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
• Growth in their understanding of self.
• Respect for another by listening.
• Exploration in relationship with others.
• An opportunity to make their Catholic faith real.
• An ability to openly share and experience what it means to be a Catholic teen today.

In order to be confirmed, you must show proof of two years of religious education, whether it is through a parish-sponsored religious education program or Catholic school attendance

Volunteer Service Requirements:

In preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation, service is to be done within a certain framework. Service allows the student to follow Jesus' life "I have come to serve not to be served" and as such these experiences should be centerd on the Corporal Works of Mercy. Candidates for the Sacrament of Confirmation must offer at least 10 hours of service in the community or parish (5 hours each year).

Retreat

10th graders must participate in a retreat prior to receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. The retreat will be held in the Spring a few weeks before confirmation.

Choosing a Confirmation Name

If your given name is not a saint’s name, as a candidate for the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation, you must pick a saint's name to be placed after your present middle name and before your last name. The saint's name you choose symbolizes a new beginning in your faith life as well as a connection with that particular saint.                          

Interviews
Every candidate is interviewed prior to receving the sacrament.  Infrmation and forms regarding this process will be posted.
