The Sacrament of Confirmation
Pre-Sacrament Registration Requirements
In the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, teens in the 11th or 12th grade are invited to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation:
Sponsor requirements are printed in the Confirmation Handbook given to candidates at the Teen/Parent Meeting on October 15, 2017. We ask that teens select their sponsor as soon as possible so they can begin walking together in faith. Sponsors are required to attend the program sessions with their candidate and discuss topics presented. A proxy/parent is required if the sponsor is unable to attend.

Confirmation Preparation Registration
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee requires teens to attend Confirmation programs through their parish in hopes the teens see their parish as the source of Catholic fellowship, family and faith, both today and after high school.
SMV requires the candidates to attend four sessions, January-April, and one overnight retreat in March.
Service given to the parish, community in which they live and in their schools is a way of life for Catholics. As part of the SMV 2017-18 Confirmation preparation, teens are asked to write a one page paper on their understanding of why Jesus tells us to serve others. This paper is to be emailed or share in google docs to Elizabeth Harrison, Co-Director of Child & Teen Ministry, before January 2018, email@example.com.
