Confirmation Program 2018-2019
This page is for those students who entered the eighth grade in August 2018 and will be confirmed in the fall of 2019.
Students in our Parish School of Religion and who attend St. Francis Xavier School will prepare together for the sacrament of Confirmation one Thursday evening each month. Our formation program consists of 10 sessions beginning in September 2018 and ending with Confirmation, usually in October, in the fall of their ninth-grade year. (The bishop has not yet set the date.)
This program is led by Deacon Bob and Dawn Cavanaugh (330-764-8958).

Forms you’ll need:
Stewardship project forms due May 30.
Teen form Parent form
The Confirmation Stewardship project is done with your teen. The activity should take 2 to 4 hours. Suggestion: sorting or packing food at a food bank, serving meals at a shelter, playing games/visiting with residents at a nursing home. We want them to serve God’s people…the hungry, homeless and sick. If you are unsure if your idea qualifies, email Dawn at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 330-764-8958. After the project is completed, complete and submit two sheets — one by the parent, one by the teen.
All confirmation students must attend a retreat. Here are two options:
- Peer-to-Peer Retreat (March 29-31, 2019) registration
- Aug. 25, 2019 – 10am-6:30pm (includes Mass) at St. Francis Xavier
