The immediate preparation for Confirmation typically begins in the 2nd semester of 10th grade & continues into the fall of 11th grade (but there are many 11th/12th graders also in the program). Confirmation is celebrated at the end of October, or some time in November each year.
If teens wish to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation in 11th or 12th grade, they are expected to attend and meet all requirements of their religion classes either at a Catholic School or a parish Religious Education Program.
Please see the calendar below for specific dates for events and activities. For more information please contact Mrs. McSparron, DRE through the email link above, or emailing her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (518) 489-3204 X5.
Adults who are interested in preparing for Confirmation should contact the Parish Office at (518) 489-3204
The Next Parent & Student Confirmation Meeting Will Take Place on April 7, 2019 at 1:30 PM in the Church
This informational meeting is for at least one parent per student & the students in 10th grade & above who have been consistently participating in a parish religious ed program or attending a Catholic school. Please bring with you: a copy of your Baptism & 1st Communion Certificates if these sacraments were celebrated at a church other than St. Catherine's, St. Teresa's, or Mater Christi; a baptism photo but if one is not available, a simple infant photo will do; and, a check for $85.00 to cover registration and retreat fees.
