Beginning in 9th Grade, candidates must complete four foundation sessions, three service projects and submit all required paperwork by March 1, 2018. We request that ALL candidates complete the 9th Grade Confirmation Registration form on the PSR Registration Information page to register for the 9th Grade preparation program. Candidates who attend an Archdiocesan High School for 9th grade will be waived from the four foundation sessions upon written verification of their participation in faith formation in an accredited Catholic school setting. There is no fee for 9th graders who will be attending a Catholic school in the Fall.
NOTE: Candidates who have missed previous sacraments or 8th grade formation may need additional prepration. Contact us for details. The Pastor and the Director of Religious Education reserve the right to amend the Confirmation requirements as needed. Parents and candidates will be notified if changes are made.
