A Confirmation Packet was distributed to all Confirmation II and High School Sacrament Prep Families at the Parent Meeting.  Enclosed in this packet you will find:

– Confirmation Information Sheet

– Saint Report Instructions

– Testimony of Designated Sponsor – must be completed on paper

– Stewardship Project Form

– The majority of the packet can be completed online by using the links below.

The Confirmation Information Sheet is due on or before December 19, 2023. This form updates your contact information, lists the name of the person chosen as sponsor, the relationship of that person to the candidate, and the confirmation name the candidate has chosen. Please indicate the complete name of the saint  For example, if the name selected is St. Francis, please indicate St. Francis of Assisi or St. Francis de Sales.

Each student is asked to complete a Saint Report on the name of the saint or the virtue that they have chosen to emulate.  It should include the life of the saint or the meaning of the virtue, and why the candidate has selected it as their Confirmation name.  The saint report is due on or before January 31, 2024.

The Diocese of Rockville Centre has mandated that all parishes obtain a Testimony of Designated Sponsor. This is a form that the sponsor is to fill out and have signed by his/her parish delegate – even if the sponsor is a parishioner of St. Patrick. It is a declaration by the sponsor that they are a Catholic in good standing and able to serve as a sponsor for Confirmation.  This form is due on or before January 31, 2024.  If you need additional copies of this form, please click on the link below.

All candidates are required to complete a Stewardship Service Project in the parish and/or community in response to our call to service as Catholics. Through serving others, we learn lessons and put our lives into perspective.  God has bless you with many talents and time that can be used to benefit those that are less fortunate.  Your form may be completed at any time prior to your last class.  Some students chose to complete their Stewardship Projects during the summer months.  This form is due on or before March 19, 2024.
