Christian Service
Confirmation I candidates are required to complete a minimum of 10 hours of Christian Service that reflect one or more of the Corporal or Spiritual Works of Mercy. Please see our Parent Handbook for a full explanation of what sorts of activities would satisfy this requirement. Please use the Christian Service form to log your child’s hours and turn it in at the end of the term. For our purposes, parents are considered the supervisors of their children’s Christian service and should sign the form.

Final Exam:
At the end of the first year, students are required to demonstrate their knowledge of the faith by passing an exam. Students are allowed to repeat the exam as many times as is necessary to achieve a passing score of 80 points. Passing the exam is a required for enrollment in the Confirmation II program.
