In accordance with the 3rd Commandment, participating in Sunday Mass is a necessary part of being Catholic. Candidates are expected to attend Sunday Mass each week.

Candidates are required to attend all six catechetical sessions as well as the Confirmation Retreat. After each catechetical session, Candidates and facilitators will attend 12pm
Mass as a group.

Candidates must practice the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. Specifically, candidates must complete one service activity of 12+ hours or three service activities of 4+ hours (one being completed at OLP Parish) of Christian service to the poor, the elderly, or others in need. After completing these activities, they will fill out an online reflection form responding to specific questions about their Deeds of Mercy and what they’ve learned.
