Confirmation Candidate Reminders

Confirmation Candidates who need to make up classes or retreats will find a schedule of events being held throughout the diocese here.   Please make plans to attend the appropriate class or retreat prior to the event.

Please dress accordingly.  “Name tag must be worn on the chest at all times for easy identification and serves as (your) meal ticket.”
