Confirmation 2020 Information & Forms

Dear Parents,

We have no idea when our Confirmation is going to be scheduled. We were given the fall of 2020, however, with this unexpected closure and the cancallations of Spring Confiramtions in the Diocese, we will need to be patient and wait for the decisions to be made. This does not stop us from being prepared. This summer we will all be complete the required curriculum information for the Confirmation Program. We have the Works of Mercy, Saint Project and required forms to complete. We are going to continue with the same timeline to insure that we are prepared for whatever date that the Diocese gives our parish.

  The following information needs to be handed into the office by the end of May. All projects (Works of Mercy & saint ) need to be turned in by September 1st.

  • Application Form:  All information must be completed ad legible or the form will be sent back to you.


  • The Fee Envelope:  The Confirmation fee is $75.00 .  The PREP students have already paid this with registration.  However, the STA students need to send it into the PREP office with your application.  Please put both into the envelope provided by your teacher.


  • Parent Letter(s) and Sponsor Letter:  We encourage you write letters to your child which he/she will receive to read at the Candidates’ rehearsal.  


  • Sponsor at Confirmation:  A certificate of eligibility is required from each sponsor.  If a sponsor is a parishioner of St. Thomas, our Rectory staff will check eligibility.  More information about the qualifications for a sponsor is attached.


  • Works of Mercy Projects are due by September 1, 2020.  Please submit your works of mercy on the link provided.  If something is not accepted, the PREP office will contact you.  These works and the forms should be complete by the Candidate.



  • Confirmation Retreat:  Attend a Confirmation Retreat 

    • STA PREP attend Bishop Shanahan Ignite Retreat (April 18th is last one being offered)

    • STA School will attend a retreat in the early fall during school hours ( More information will be given at a later date)


  • The Confirmation Study Guide:  This is the set of Confirmation questions your child will be working on in class.  The Candidates must be able to explain the answers to the 12 questions. They do not need to be memorized, just have an understanding. See Below attachment for these questions


  • Saint Project due September 2020:  Each candidate will research the name they have chosen for Confirmation.  They will present in the social hall to our Parishioners after the October masses.  A sign up will be sent out in the fall. A rubric will be given to guide the Candidates in completing this project.


  • A letter written to the Bishop ( Sample attached) This can not be completed until we know the name of the Bishop who will be Confirming the children. However, you can have it ready to go without a name.
