Confirmation Service Hours 

Preparations for the Sacrament of Confirmation take place during seventh and eighth grades.  All seventh graders are required to do a minimum of 12 service hours for religion class.  This is part of their preparation for Confirmation, but also is an excellent practice for any student.  Please click HERE for a service hours form.

Every Confirmation Candidate must complete 12 service hours, including 6 hours in each of the two following categories: Community and Parish.  The first 6 hours must be completed by the end of the second trimester on Friday, February 23, 2018.  The remaining 6 hours will need to be completed by Monday, May 7, 2018.

How to turn in your service hours:  Once you have completed 6 hours, please bring the form to school for me to check.  The service hour sheet must be turned in showing all hours have been completed by Monday, May 7, 2018!  

Students will need to fill out their log as they complete service hours.  Please make sure to have a supervisor sign for the hours served at each location.  

Mass and Spiritual Formation

Families and friends are invited to join us at 8:45 on Wednesday mornings as we celebrate Mass.  In addition to weekly Mass, students participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation every 6 weeks on a rotation.  Our classes also spend time each Friday in Adoration during Religion class.  It is a wonderful time for them to spend time in prayer and reflection with the Blessed Sacrament.  The first Friday of each month will be a silent lunch as we continue to adore the Blessed Sacrament through the lunch hour.
