Confirmation – updated October 3, 2019

Your child is not required to be at this meeting. Please bring a copy of your child’s Baptism certificate. Fee for the book, retreat costs and materials is $20.00 payable by cheque, cash or debit/credit card.
Just as bodies and minds grow, Catholics believe that the soul also needs to grow in the life of grace. The sacrament of Confirmation builds on the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and Holy Communion, completing the process of initiation into the Catholic community. The age for celebrating the Sacrament of Confirmation at OLPH Parish is Grade 6, 11 years old or older
Confirmation Preparation includes:
- completion of Family Workbook for parent and child at home
- 5 mandatory classes at the church – Click here for class schedule: Confirmation brochure 2019_20 FINAL
- online supplemental lessons that will be sent over email
- “Now that I’m Confirmed” Retreat
Your child will need to choose a Sponsor. A sponsor must be a Confirmed Catholic at least 16 years of age and a good spiritual mentor for your child. A candidate cannot have more than two sponsors, and if two they must be one male, one female. Many candidates choose a Godparent from their baptism as their confirmation sponsor. Parents cannot be their child’s sponsors.
Parent OR Confirmation Sponsor must attend a Confirmation Rehearsal at the church WITH the child. Please choose:
- Monday May 25 at 7:30pm
- Tuesday May 26 at 7:30pm
- Saturday May 30 at 9:30am
Confirmation will be celebrated at OLPH Parish at the time of Pentecost, May 31 and June 1. There are two mass times to choose from, so please register to attend the celebration that will work best for your family.
