Former Bishop Pierre DuMaine gave Presentation High School the mandate to offer a confirmation. Although Bishop Patrick J. McGrath strongly supports our program, the student’s home parish should be her first choice for a confirmation program. 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. Led by Presentation faculty, the evening sessions consist of discussions about what it means to be Catholic, prayer, service, gifts of the spirit, and a celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated at a school-wide liturgy and reception with the Bishop. All parents and guests of the candidates are invited to attend.
