Confirmation Preparation

Welcome to Confirmation Formation for the 2022-2023 school year. We have some changes to our program that we are excited to share with you for the fall!

Starting on September 18th, Holy Family will be offering a weekly 5 pm Sunday Night Mass. Because of this change to the Mass schedule, we have adjusted the times for our Confirmation Sessions. Classes will begin on October 16th. The full schedule can be found on the sidebar of this page.

Confirmation 1 will now meet on Sunday Night from 6:00-7:00pm. Confirmation 1 classes are now 30 minutes shorter then before, but students are encouraged to attend the new 5:00pm Sunday Mass with their families before the start of class.

Confirmation 2 will now meet on Sunday Night from 7:15-8:45 pm.

Confirmation Retreats

Both Confirmation 1 and Confirmation 2 students will participate in a Retreat this year.

The Confirmation 1 Retreat will be here at Holy Family on April 2 from 3:00-7:00pm.

Confirmation 2 students will participate in a full day retreat, led by Matt, held at St. Joseph's in Kingston. There will be 2 options for this retreat, either Nov 12th or Jan 28th from 9 am - 6 pm.

Service Hours

Service is an important part of our Catholic faith and thus part of our formation program. Students are asked to spend at least 15 hours doing service during the 2 year confirmation formation program. We will be providing monthly options for the students to participate in or they can find service opportunities on their own.

Confirmation Date

Students in Confirmation 2 will be Confirmed at a ceremony here at Holy Family in the Spring of 2023. We are waiting to receive the exact date from the Archdiocese of Boston, once we have the exact date and times we will share that information with you.

Help Teaching

We need parent volunteers to help lead small group classes during our break out session times. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Matt.
