Confirmation Overview 2016-2017

The Archdiocese of Seattle recommends that each parish provide a two year Confirmation preparation program.  In consultation with our new pastor, Fr. Vincent and research of nearby parishes we have decided to begin that two-year cycle this year.  However, because this is a transition year sophomores are ‘grandfathered in’ and are eligible to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the spring of 2017.  

This year’s freshman class begins Confirmation preparation by attending at least two HR Youth Activities per month beginning in October.  Please see below for details.  Our requested dates for this year’s Confirmation Mass have been submitted to the Archdiocese.  The confirmed date will be published as soon as we receive it.

Sophomore (or older) Requirements:

  1. Age 16 by date of Confirmation Mass
  2. Attend/Participate
    1. Classes
    2. Youth Mass
    3. HR Youth Activities (one or more per month)
    4. Service (three total)
      1. Crab Feed

      3. Your choice

Freshman Requirements:

Attend at least two HR Youth Activities per month.  (Youth Mass can be included as one).
