Confirmation

Immaculate Conception's preparation for Confirmation is a two year process, usually begun in the freshman year of high school, although high school juniors and seniors with a commitment to prepare for the sacrament may also enter the program.  Regis Catholic School and public school students, whose families are members of the parish, participate in the program together.  Candidates meet in small groups, lead by adult facilitators (catechists) for eight or nine sessions of two hours each, during the school year.  Meeting times for each group will vary, with Wednesday nights, Sundays before or after Mass, and Sunday evenings being possible options.  Locations may be at the parish or in candidates homes.  Each small group session builds on the journey toward Confirmation, with the second year having the addition of three sessions with a candidate's sponsor, on Sunday mornings (dates TBA).  Other requirements are a minimum fifteen hours of 'Living Your Faith' service hours and a retreat each year of preparation. Click below for specific 'Living Your Faith' service hour details.  In order for this program to work, small group facilitators are needed -contact Linda Corey about becoming a small group facilitator.

How should candidates turn in items due?   Our Church remains open from 7:30 am till 4:30 pm on all days of the week. You can enter via the main door of off Highland Ave. or at the circular drive off of Sherwin Ave.  On the podium where you signed in for Mass, is a box for turning in ANY AND ALL CONFIRMATION ITEMS.   Consider spending some time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament or at our parish Shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary while you are there--follow the guidelines posted.  This is still sacred space and a quiet place to pray-A SANCTUARY.
