The deadline to apply to be confirmed is August 24th, 2016.
All youth who apply after August 24th will be considered the following year.
In order to receive the sacrament, all youth must be 15 years of age by January 1, 2017 and registered in and regularly attending the Confirmation preparation classes on Wednesday nights.
Also, all youth must have attended a full year of Catholic Religious Education the year prior to preparing for confirmation (ex. if confirmation is done in 10th grade, youth must have attended Catholic Religious Education in 9th grade). Think of this as a 2 year program, in the first year it's just Religious Education classes, and in year 2 it is Confirmation classes.
*Note, regularly attending means that youth cannot miss more than three (3) class sessions per semester.
If Religious Education is done at a Catholic High School, a certified Catholic Home school program, or in any other way that is outside of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, proper documentation must be turned in and approved.
In addition to the above requirements, confirmation candidates and/or their parents must meet the following requirements: (click each of the below for more information)
