Tenth grade students of registered St. Patrick families are invited to register for Confirmation Preparation. A minimum of 9 years of Religious Education through the Catholic School or Parish School of Religion is required to register. Our Confirmation Preparation is a 9 month process that begins in the candidate’s 10th grade year. Preparation includes orientation with parents, formation sessions and a retreat. All sessions are held at St. Patrick Catholic Church. Candidates are expected to attend all formation sessions, retreat, participate in 2 church ministries and in the group service project. Please contact Melissa Harshbarger for more information about Confirmation. 225-753-5750 ext 17 or [email protected]
The Confirmation sponsor is meant to provide spiritual help to the candidate. It is a great blessing and a responsibility to commit to the role of the sponsor. The sponsor must be a fully initiated, practicing Catholic who has received the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. If married, the marriage must be recognized by the Church.
