Living out our Baptismal Promise

Forming our faith is an ongoing, never-ending lifelong journey.


In a letter to all pastors, Bishop Dewane has said that, “Preparation for reception of confirmation will be a two year process, beginning in grade 9, culminating in the reception of the sacrament at the end of grade 10. First Eucharist will continue to be received at the end of 2nd grade. This will be the policy for Confirmation and First Communion in all the Parishes, Chapels and Missions of the Diocese of Venice and is keeping with the practices of the other six dioceses throughout the province.”

Thus, ALL High School Confirmation candidates must be registered and attending Sunday youth group two years prior to receiving the sacrament. Registration is now open.
