Welcome to Confirmation! 

Thank you for allowing us to be on your journey towards Confirmation. At St. Patrick's we focus on immediate preparation for Confirmation. There are online classes, several collaboration classes and a collaborative retreat experience. It is a privilege to work with St. Angela Merici, Christ the Good Shepherd and St. Columba parishes throughout the process of Confirmation preparations. Additonally, we are honored to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Columba Cathedral with several other parishes of our Diocese. Next year, we will be celebrating the Sacrament on Saturday April 25, 2020.

The buttons below will be updated in early September to contain links for all documentation for Confirmation including: calendar, permanent record form and sponsor information.  All paperwork is to be completed and returned to Marcy at the Rectory as soon as possible once the website is updated. 

If you have any question, please call Marcy at 330-743-1109 or email her at
