At Presentation, Confirmation is offered every other year to juniors and seniors. The process entails completing an application, interviewing with a campus minister, choosing a sponsor, attending Mass regularly, participating in evening sessions and volunteering.
Although Bishop Patrick J. McGrath strongly supports our program, the student’s home parish should be her first choice for all Sacramental preparation.
Juniors and seniors may sign up to be in Presentation's program through an information sheet in their religion/interdisciplinary classes in September of alternate years.
