Confirmation Requirements and Activities

Sunday and Holy Day Mass Attendance

Mass attendance and receiving of the Holy Eucharist are the center of our Catholic Faith.  The Church’s teaching and obligation of all Catholics is to keep the Sabbath Day and to attend Sunday and Holy Day masses.

Students receiving the sacrament of Confirmation must turn in Baptismal, First Holy Communion certificates by September. Students will be asked to choose and write about a Saint for Confirmation.

Sponsor forms must be turned in as soon as possible but no later than January.


All Confirmation Students will attend Mass together once a month usually the 1st Sunday of the month. please refer to the student’s calendar to identify those days.



There will be one (2) retreats scheduled for all Pre-Confirmation and Confirmation students. Students are required to attend.

Parish retreats will be scheduled by Fr. Oliver and students are required to attend. 

Community Service 

As we prepare for Confirmation, our Christian service should be about more than just doing a good deed.  We must aim at developing virtues of faith. The Diocese of Las Cruces has requested that Community service hours be done as a group. The Teachers will announce when a community service. project will be scheduled.

If a student is not helping or participating in a scheduled community service activity, the time the student is there will not be counted toward their community service hours.
