All 10th Grade Candidates will need to register for Confirmation and select an IGNITE Retreat by May 1, 2018 to reserve your spot. Please note that this is earlier than the PSR registration deadline. Choose one retreat date from the calendar below. If you are aware of a conflict that keeps you from fully committing to either IGNITE Retreat, please let us know by May 1st. Sponsor Verification Forms and Confirmation Name Forms are also due at this time. Rehearsal and Confirmation times will be scheduled upon completion of these requirements. Three Service Reflections for the IGNITE component are due by August 1, 2018. See the Confirmation Forms & Information page for details.
NOTE: Candidates who have missed previous sacraments or 8th grade formation may need additional preparation. Contact the PSR Office 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.
