Confirmation for Youth

Confirmation for Youth

Preparation for Confirmation is accomplished through ongoing Faith Formation at The Basilica of Saint Mary or at a Catholic school that the student attends. (Students not attending a Catholic School must participate in the Sunday evening Faith Formation sessions throughout the 9th and 10th Grades at The Basilica.)  In addition, immediate preparation for the Sacrament will include:

  • A mandatory parent meeting in October.
  • Monthly meetings outside of Faith Formation during the 10th Grade year which will include some Sponsor-Candidate gatherings as well as a retreat for the Candidates.

For more information or to get involved in the youth confirmation program, schedule an appointment with Christine Moore 612.317.3435, Coordinator of Young Adult and Sacrament Preparation.
