Confirmation letter (in place of Season 10 reflection)


Confirmation II Final Assignment:  Letter to Father Mahoney



As a Confirmation candidate you are asked to send your pastor, Father Mahoney, a letter explaining what Confirmation means to you personally and why you wish to be confirmed.  It must be sent by mail or dropped off at the St. Margaret’s rectory.  Do not email it.  The letter should use formal language and be proofread.  The purpose of the letter is to describe what is happening in your life and how you have prepared for Confirmation.  All letters must be received by March 24, 2021 and will be given to Father Mahoney.


Your letter should be written in proper business letter format.  It should include the following:


  • A description of how you are practicing your faith and how you are preparing for Confirmation.  You may touch on prayer habits, in-person or virtual Mass attendance, attendance at Confirmation class, completion of assignments, and any other activities or experiences you feel have helped you prepare for the Sacrament.  Please be specific.

  • Your reasons for wanting to be Confirmed.

  • Your Confirmation name and why you chose it.  Please try to incorporate information about the associated Saint.  If you are choosing the name of a family member or another person close to you, please talk a little bit about why this person is important to you.

  • The name of your sponsor, your relationship to them, and why you chose them.
