Confirmation

Important Information Regarding the Reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation

Per the Bishop's extension of the suspension of public Masses through May 20, the scheduling of all Sacrament Masses is on hold. We will update you as more information becomes available.

Distance Learning Resources During the COVID-19 Outbreak

In the absence of in-person Sacramental Preparation during the COVID-19 outbreak, please use the following resources to continue your lessons at home. New lessons will be added here each week and emailed to registered families. Please be sure to utilize these materials to continue the Confirmation discussion at home! Upon completion of the weekly assignment, please respond to your weekly email or send a quick message to Shari at sgarcia@st-pius.org.

Feel free to work at a pace that is comfortable for you! The lessons are not meant to take longer than one hour to complete at home, but if you are struggling to pace the work while completing other schoolwork, please consider the following suggestion:

  • Each video is brief and has its own workbook pages to accompany it. Take a short 15-20 minute break during the day to watch one video and complete the accompanying workbook pages. Everything is linked below! Though there is no specific timeline in which the work needs to be completed, I recommend not taking more than one week to complete each lesson, as a new lesson will be sent the following week!
    • For example, watch 10.0 and complete the workbook pages on Monday, 10.1 and the workbook pages Tuesday, etc.
  • Note: The workbook pages are meant to function as a supplement to the videos and to help facilitate discussion at home! The only thing we request is a brief (2-3 sentence) response to the material each week.
