Class Schedule

Below are links to the “First Year Confirmation Schedule” and “Second Year Confirmation Schedule”. Confirmation classes will take place on average twice a month on Sunday’s from 4:00 – 5:30 pm for both first year and second year students. The first day we will have orientation and explain the procedures we will be following  for the year, and the materials will be distributed. Regular attendance at class are of utmost importance, so please be sure that your child can commit to this time frame before registering.

Baptismal Certificates

This is necessary in order to be confirmed.
