Commonly asked questions:
 
Who can be my Confirmation Sponsor And what is a proxy?
  • All sponsors must be 16 years of age, a confirmed catholic and someone who is actively practicing their faith.  Sponsor can be an older sibling (or other family member a friend or a parishioner, but they CANNOT BE the candidates mother or father.  A mother or father may stand in for the official sponsor if they cannot attend Confirmation as a "proxy."
 
Do I have to select a Saints name?
  • Tradition has dictated that, at the time of confirmation, a candidate takes on a new symbolic name to mark a significant personal/spiritual milestone .  The church has encouraged this tradition which has its roots in the Bible, for example, Simon becomes Peter and Saul becomes Paul.

 

Community Service

Volunteering is an essential part of preparing our students to develop an increased sense of social responsibility, a heart for giving back and helping others! All Confirmation I & II students must commit to volunteer 15 hours. At OLMC we have many opportunities available.
