Confirmation Saint

At Confirmation, a student takes the name of a Saint whose life inspires them to a further commitment to Jesus Christ. Not only an inspiration in story and virtue, but a student looks for a Saint who they aspire to be like in regards to their masculinity or femininity. Because of this, students are asked by the Bishop to pick saints of the same sex as the student.

*The name a student takes should not be in honor of a grandparent or relative. While it is honorable to pick someone close to you, the Church has held it must be a Saint.

When you have chosen your saint, please fill out the Confirmation Saint form. Link found below.
