Confirmation Class

The Schedule and Topic outline for the Confirmation Class can be found here: 2016-17 Topic Outline

The Confirmation Mass TBD

The Confirmation retreat will take place on the 19th & 20th of November @ Spiritus in Menasha, WI.  The link to their website can be found here: Spiritus

In addition, students will need to have a permission slip filled out to attend the retreat which can be found here: Permission Slip 

As is custom, the candidate will need to select a Confirmation sponsor.  This year we would like to have the candidate's sponsors attend class during the November 15th session.  This is done with the hope that the sponsor will be involved with the candidate's journey towards the reception of the sacrament beginning very early in the process.  Information on who is eligible to be a sponsor and what will be expected of them can be found here.

Learning Resource Links:

Word on Fire: This organization, led by Bishop-elect Robert Barron, includes many media resources of various types.  This is a good site to visit for information on classic Catholic teaching in various areas as well as commentary on current events. This site is a great place to spend a few moments of your day.

The Holy See: The place to go to find out what Pope Francis ACTUALLY SAID.  Also a great resource for Church documents in general.
