HIGH SCHOOL CONFIRMATION

Registration is Now Open

Our next confirmation preparation will be in the fall of 2020.

Please note the requirements below to be eligible for next time.
*All required documentation and material fee must be received for registration to be complete.

*Prerequisite: Students must be enrolled in Religious Education the immediate year prior to Confirmation preparation, with an 80% minimum attendance rate. If your teen is not a student in Catholic School with approved curriculum, please enroll in one of our Religious Education opportunities that begin this Fall 2020.

High School Confirmation is for youth who wish to be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit, learn about their faith and their relationship with God, and discover more about themselves and how they impact the lives of others. They begin preparing in the fall of their 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade year, and then they receive their sacrament of Confirmation in the Spring.

 

Classes are typically held on the second Sunday of the month from 3:30-5:15pm and the second Thursday of the month from 6:00-7:30pm.

Registration is for students who:

  • Are going into 9th-12th grade
  • Are currently in a religious education class with a minimum of 80% attendance rate (If not an STM program, then a letter of participation from the parish or Catholic School will be required)
  • Are baptized Catholic and have received their First Eucharist
  • If you are a non-parishioner and live outside of the Archdiocese of Denver, or recently transferred from another local Parish within the past 6 months, you will need to obtain permission from your Parish Pastor. Letter of permission must be received along with your registration.
