Confirmation Information and Registration

Preparation for Confirmation is a two-year journey.

The first step to take is to enroll in the Confirmation preparation program by completing the Confirmation Registration form.

Parents and student will be advised of the date and time of the first class, which generally is set for one of the last Sundays in August. The first session will be held in the Saint Albert the Great School gymnasium. Parents are required to attend. In order to complete registration for Confirmation, please bring your child's baptismal certificate to the first session.  

Please note: Students who attended Bishop Manogue High School as Freshman may begin the Confirmation program as a Sophomore. You will receive one year of credit for the religion classes that you took your Freshman year. Students attending public High School will need to begin the Confirmation program in the 9th grade if you wish to be confirmed as a Sophomore.

Those who wish to be confirmed at Saint Albert the Great must be registered members of the parish.

"When the day of Pente-cost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there ap-peared to them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utter-ance" (Acts 2:1-4).
