A video is optional for parishes. If you'd like to take the opportunity to greet your candidates, this is a great way to do that! We suggest something along the lines of...
- Hello from the parish
- Introducing anyone in particular
- Excitement to journey with them
- Any advice for candidates as they prepare
Message from the parish!
Parish specific information for parents and candidates.
Details about what to expect from Confirmation, if you had dates, any details you want to share with them.
Feel free to include a Link to an electronic form like a GoogleForm for parents to fill in. Every Archdiocese and Diocese has specific information needed from families. If you'd like, we can also embed the form into this page. (See below, as we've embedded another form from GoogleForm)
Let us know if you'd like help with this.

About The Mark
HopeStone, a Catholic lay organization wanted to give parishes, schools and families an opportunity to journey through Confirmation Preparation in an interesting, easy to understand and family friendly experience.
There are 6 sessions within this program.
Each session will begin with a prayer, followed by a talk regarding an aspect of Confirmation and then finished with a personal testimony.
Each session will have 3 questions that are meant for submitting, which your parish leaders will receive.
Session should take approximately 20-30minutes.
Below is a short summary about the program:
Session 1 - "The One"
- Who is God, where did He come from and was He created?
Session 2 - "The Holy"
- Who is Jesus, where and why did He come? Why did He have to die?
Session 3 - "The Catholic"
- The Holy Spirit and how the church was established.
Session 4 - "The Apostolic"
- Who are the Apostles were and why they were important?
- Along with information about Pentecost.
Session 5 - "The Church"
- What is the church? What does it mean to be a part of the church?
Session 6 - "The Mark"
- What does Confirmation mean for your soul?
- How and why is it important in your life?
