At Immaculate Heart of Mary, children are offered the opportunity to seek Confirmation in the Catholic Church in tenth grade. This is a one year preparation process which begins in September and concludes in April. The family must be registered in the parish, and the child seeking Confirmation must have received Baptism, Reconciliation and Eucharist. Please contact either the Parish Office or the Youth Director of the parish to enroll.
Parishioners of Immaculate Heart of Mary entering into the sophomore year of high school or older have the opportunity to begin preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation. Each candidate preparing for Confirmation will meet with their sponsor or a mentor from the parish about six times from September to April. The sponsor/mentor will discuss habits that will help the candidate in preparing for how they will live out their life as a Christian disciple. Along with this, candidates will participate in a few large/small group meetings, community service, Mass ministries, and a retreat.
