NASHOBA VALLEY CATHOLIC COLLABORATIVE PRE-CONFIRMATION & CONFIRMATION PREP REQUIREMENTS STARTING 2022-23
Junior High Students: Starting this year, in order to move on to Confirmation preparation, you must attend at least 1 year of Faith Formation within 2 years prior to starting Confirmation. This means to at least attend Faith Formation in grade 7 &/or 8.
Students starting Confirmation 1 OR who are considering starting Confirmation prep in November, 2022, existing Confirmation 2 and Confirmation 3 students are required to attend the Confirmation Retreat scheduled on September 24, 2022, from 9am-5pm at St. Anthony’s Desrosier Hall. Lunch is included. All students will be attending 4pm Mass after the retreat.
Confirmation 1 and Confirmation 2 students: Community service has always been highlighted as an important part of our faith. To address this, at least 15 hours of Works of Mercy (Community Service) is requested to be completed and verified on your Volunteer Log Sheet in the 2 years of Confirmation prep. These hours can also be counted for school requirements. There are many opportunities within the church and community. (See the Faith Formation 2022-23 Calendar.) Working on a charity project is also strongly encouraged and supported during this time-frame.
