Confirmation is offered every other year to juniors and seniors. After completing an application, candidates will be asked to enroll in the Faithful Life course, participate in preparation sessions, complete a personal interview with a campus minister and attend their grade level retreat. Led by campus ministry staff, students' preparation also consists of discussions about what it means to be Catholic and a celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated at a school-wide liturgy with the Bishop. Students will receive an opportunity to indicate their interest in the spring of 2024.
