The Sacrament of Confirmation is usually received following two years of preparation in parish religious education classes. High School freshmen and sophomores prepare on Sunday mornings at 8:45 a.m., meeting in the parish house and are confirmed in the spring of the second year. The sacrament is usually conferred by the Bishop at one of the three local parishes, determined by rotation. 2012 Confirmation was held at St. Michael’s. 2011 Confirmation was conferred at St. Joseph’s in Florence. 2013 was held at Our Lady of the Shoals Parish. 2015 was held at St. Michael’s on March 16, 2015 at 6:00 p.m., followed by a reception. Other preparation and arrangements may be made after contacting the pastor.
