    What does the program look like? 

    The St. Odilia Confirmation program is a two year program starting in 7th grade and ending the spring of 8th grade.  Programming runs weekly for the candidates on Wednesday nights from late September to early May.  The Confirmation preparation process also partners with 8th grade parents by holding larger events 3 times in the year, two on a Wednesday evening and one on a Sunday evening.  At the bottom of the page there is a full list of dates for classes and events as well as a checklist of standards for each grade.   

     

    What is used for the Curriculum? 

    The St. Odilia Confirmation program integrates the Chosen curriuculum of Ascension Press, a weekly Bible study, and Lifeteen's Edge program.  Classes combine both large group presentations, small group discussion and occasional guest speakers to give a diversity of learning experiences to best prepare each candidate. Through Chosen, Bible studies, and Edge the St. Odilia Confirmation program gives a comprehensive intellectual and spiritual preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation.  We strive to deepen each candidate's relationship with God through the Study of Scripture, Tradition, and the Teachings of the Church that they may become lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ and His Church.

Service Hours

  • This year due to COVID 19 and everyone's varying levels of comfort we are allowing parents to dictate what will count towards hours of service. Each year we ask that students participate in at least 8 hours of service. When a child has completed some hours of service please have a parent fill out the Service Hours google form below for our records.  Please have your service hours completed by April 27th, 2022.

How to Submit Baptismal Record

  • The Archdiocese requires a newly issued Baptismal Record for our Confirmation candidates.  Please send in Baptism Certificate between Dec 6th 2021-May 4th 2022 (Baptism records must be sent in no sooner than 6 months prior to Confirmation.)

    This will not be necessary for candidates who were baptized at St. Odilia.

    Please indicate on the form below if you would like to contact the baptismal place of origin or if you would like St. Odilia to request the baptismal record. If you choose to request the copy, please have the record sent to the attention of Marta O'Malley.

    We need ALL families to provide sacramental information which includes family, sponsor and baptismal information for our records. Please Click Here and follow the instructions to submit the required information.
