    • Please complete the Sacramental Record Form 

      The Sacramental Record form helps us verify your child's Baptism, as well as gives us all the information needed to record the reception of their Confirmation. In order to fill out this form, you will need a copy of your child's Baptism Certificate.

       

      To acquire your child's Baptism Certificate please follow the directions below:

      1. Call the Church in which your child was baptized and request a copy of the Baptism Certificate. Please ask them to scan and email a copy to your best email address as well as to Alex Hall (hall@stodilia.org). In addition to the scan please also ask them to mail a copy to the Church of St. Odilia, Attention Alex Hall, 3495 North Victoria Street. Shoreview, MN 55126
      2. Once you have received an emailed copy of your child's certificate, you will have all the information needed to fill out the Sacramental Form. Please note, you will not be able to complete the Form without a copy of the certificate.

       

      ***For those children Baptized at St. Odilia, you will not need to request the record of Baptism since we hold the record, BUT we ask that you still fill out the form. ***

  • Stuck on who you should pick for your Confirmation Saint?

    Life Teen has prepared a wonderful list with different suggestions -- we have attached a link below!

    Click Here!

    Remember: Picking a Confirmation Saint should be taken seriously. The idea is to pick a Saint who would be a good model for you as you grow in holiness and try to live the Christian life. Find a Saint who has similar interests to you, similar struggles, or someone who led an earthly life you find admirable.

    Though the Sacrament of Confirmation is not accompanied by a legal name change, Catholics often informally add their Saint's first name after their middle name and before their last name, so keep that in mind when you pick a Saint.

    The Saints who share your first or middle names are already special patrons, so you might pick a Saint who you are not already named after.
