Confirmation

Confirmation Date for 2017:  February 18, 2017 (Saturday) at the 5:00 p.m. Mass.

Adult If you are an adult Catholic and you missed being confirmed when you were a youth, we have separate Confirmation preparation sessions for adult Catholics.  Contact Sharon Burger at (812) 630-3257.

Youth:  Confirmation normally occurs during the sophomore year of high school.  Preparation begins during the 8th grade year with a Confirmation retreat, normally held in February.  Freshmen have the opportunity to attend the Confirmation Spectacular held by the Diocese of Evansville in  early February/late January.   The freshmen also host the Confirmation reception for the sophomores after the Confirmation Mass for the sophomores.  During the student's sophomore year, they are expected to attend the Confirmation preparation sessions, in addition to their regular religious education classes. 

Sponsor:  The sponsor must be a confirmed, practicing Catholic at least 16 years of age.  A parent cannot be a sponsor for their own child. 

Forms: The forms need to be completed and turned in 2 months prior to Confirmation.  The information is used for the permanent parish registry, and if the candidate has been baptized elsewhere, a letter of notification is sent to that parish.  Click on the following for Candidate and Sponsor forms:    Candidate                           Sponsor
