Click HERE for Latest Messages / Information.
CALENDAR / SCHEDULE
A full calendar will be distributed digitally shortly after the program begins (see Initial Gatherings below).
In general, Confirmation gatherings happen on Sunday afternoons for an hour, on average twice a month. (With expectations of certain exercises, content consumption, and other assigned tasks being completed outside of the gatherings. These expectations will be shared at the gatherings.)
Initial (2020) Gatherings:
Sunday, November 22, 3pm - Sponsor & Saint Name Overview / Explanation
Sunday, December 6, 3pm - The Theology of the Sacrament of Confirmation & Formed.org
Sunday, December 13, 3pm - Sponsor & Saint Choices / Documentation DUE
This preparation process will be undertaken by each candidate individually accompanied by an adult companion. Preferably that adult will be their chosen sponsor as much as possible. If the sponsor is unavailable to participate in the process (either due to health issues, geographical distance combined with technological limitations, or other reason) then a parent can be the candidate's companion.
PANDEMIC: Online Option
Due to continued public health concerns, especially for those in higher risk categories of infection such as the elderly or those with immunocompromised pre-existing conditions, we will be live streaming our gatherings online so that candidates and their adult companions can join us from home. The registration form asks you to provide us your (at least initial) choice between in person or virtual participation.
REGISTRATION INFORMATION: Now Closed, 2022 Confirmation Registration will open in Fall 2021.
Initial $30 per candidate at time of Registration. Another fee will be assessed Fall 2021 for the second part of Confirmation preparation.
Registration: Now Closed, 2022 Confirmation Registration will open in Fall 2021.
Open Period: October 25 - November 15 (There will be NO registrations accepted after Nov 15.)
Registration is a Two Step Process.
Step 1: Parish Registration
If you are not already a registered parishioner at St. Andrew Church (in our database with updated information and regularly receiving pre-printed tithing envelopes), then you must register in the parish first.
You can so so online here (in English).

Feel free to complete this step now (even if outside the Confirmation Registration window) if you need to do so. You will then be ready on October 25 to complete Step 2.
Step 2: Confirmation Registration
Online with immediate debit/credit card payment.*
* If you cannot pay with a debit/credit card or all at once, please contact the Faith Formation Office (239.574.2411) to make alternative arrangements. We are happy to help you register during our office hours (Mon-Thurs 10a-4p) or by appointment if you need to either pay by an alternative method (check or cash) or need to discuss financial assistance. Please never allow financial burden to prevent you from registering.
