Submit Declaration of Sponsor form by the appointed due date.
Activity #1: Share Your Stories

Activity #2: Faith Challenges
Choice A - Choose one of the following books to read over the course of preparation before receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. Meet to discuss the book together, once you have completed it.

- Help, Thanks, Wow by Anne Lamott
- Tattoos on the Heart by Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ
Choice B - Watch and discuss the weekly reflections on the Sunday readings (They can be found by following the link, here)
Activity #3: Research the Saints/Choose a Confirmation Name
- Submit the Confirmation Name form by the deadline specified.
- Follow this link to take a very brief quiz, to learn what you share in common with the saints.
- Read the above form and review the two options (to stay with your baptismal name or to choose a saint's name). Discuss the options with your sponsor and make a choice.
- Research the saints, using this resource. If you choose to stay with your baptismal name and your name is also the name of a saint, then that will be the one you will research, but if you go with the option to choose a saint name then you'll need to do more research.
- Complete the Confirmation Name form and submit it to the coordinators on the date specified.
