“There is a God who loves me
He lives within me
There’s a world that needs Him
So He sent me to them”


We are so excited to come together again in the Fall to continue our Confirmation preparation and kick off our new Year Two Confirmation Program: PURPOSE.  Our goal is to not only provide youth with a transformative experience to prepare them for the Sacrament of Confirmation, but to also empower them to become lifelong disciples and evangelists in a world that is desperately seeking a purpose that can only be found in Christ. The curriculum addresses three big questions, “Why believe in God?”, “Why trust Jesus?” and “Why be a part of the Church?”

As you get ready for the upcoming year, we would like to give you some reminders and share some new information regarding our Confirmation program.

  • Registration: Registration for the year two program is open! Please click the button below.
  • Schedule: Our Year Two program includes meeting twice a month on Sundays for our Confirmation sessions, and a Year Two Retreat. We encourage all candidates to join us for the 12:00 noon Mass. After Mass, our sessions will run 1:00-2:30pm.
    • 9/8 (Parent and Candidate Meeting), 9/29, 10/6, 10/20, 11/10, 11/16 (Day Retreat at SPX, 9:30 am-5:00 Vigil Mass), 11/24, 12/8, 12/15, 1/12, 1/26, 2/9, 3/1
    • A printable calendar with our session dates can be found below
  • Parent Informational Meeting & Candidate Safe Environment Training: Our first meeting will be held Sunday, September 8, 1:00-2:30 pm in the Parish Center.
    • We will start all together in the Parish Center, and then candidates will remain in the Parish Center, and parents will gather in the Chapel.
    • We will be introducing our new program, PURPOSE, and going over our new communication tools and app. Please make every effort to attend this meeting!

It is our hope that these changes will strengthen our program and best equip candidates in their relationship with Christ and their walk as disciples. If you have any questions, please contact Jim Burns or Lauren Numrich at confirmation@stpiusxloudonville.org or at 518-462-1336 x 2009.

Thank you and God Bless,

Jim Burns, Lauren Numrich, and Heidi Cummins
