Confirmation is a unique time in the life of a teenager. In this turbulent world, it is often difficult for us to find our moral compass and the spiritual path for our souls.

Confirmation will be
Saturday, June 1, 2019, at 6pm.

Students and sponsors will need to arrive 2 hours early.
Details will be given out in April regarding the ceremony. Please plan accordingly.

St. Gerard’s Parish offers a two-year Confirmation program that is directed toward making our Catholic faith relevant to the world in which we live. The first year works on helping the candidates understand that our faith is not simply a lesson in history but a lived experience in everyday life.  We explore the two worlds of science and religion. The second year we explore the value system of the world around us and the ways in which the Holy Spirit helps us to live lives that fulfills our destiny on earth. 

Ninth grade students and their families are required to commit to a family service project.  Tenth grade families are required to commit to a family service project AND to participate as a family in ONE Sunday evening 6:00 Mass.  Details regarding the family service projects will be given out at the Parents’ Meeting. Confirmation Mass sign-ups will be done through Sign-Up Genius as well.
