8th Grade Confirmation

Per diocesan regulations, all students must be in a formation program for a minimum of two years. At OLMC, our students are Confirmed in the fall of their freshman year. 



Choosing a sponsor


Several important decisions are made throughout this final year of formation. Choosing a Confirmation sponsor is a process of prayerful discernment. Please click here for a visual flow chart to assist you in this process. Below are some tips to assist you in the selection of a sponsor:


  • Must be at least 16 years old
  • Must be a practicing, fully initiated Catholic (has been baptized, received First Holy Communion, and been Confirmed)

  • May NOT be parent of the candidate


Role of the Sponsor

  • To guide the candidate throughout the formation process

  • To pray with and for the candidate leading up to and following Confirmation
