Saint of the Week!

Each week complete a little lesson on a saint so you can learn more about them and their lives. Maybe you will be called to choose one of them as your Confirmation saint! To help keep on track, the forms will close on the dates indicated so be sure to complete them on time. All the saint forms for each quarter will be open until their close date so feel free to work ahead!

You will receive an email confirmation that we have received and recorded your saint form. Please wait until at least one week past the due date for that confirmation.

If you miss a week, we will not be opening the saint forms again, but the candidates can make up the saint form by using the biography link and following the steps below. These must be turned in by the end of each quarter to receive credit.

How to Submit the Saint Form Make-up

1) Under each saint form link, there is a link to the biography of that saint.  Have your child read the biographies for the saint forms they are missing.

2) After they read each biography, they need to write FIVE meaningful facts that they learned about each saint (NOT just the year they died or what they are the patron saint of, however ONE of these types of facts is acceptable per saint).

3) All the saints they are missing should be written about separately in one document.  Please only send ONE typed document with ALL the saints they need to complete included.  The write-ups for each individual saint can be written as a list of facts or a paragraph.  Please have them title each saint write-up with the week number and saint name (ex: Week 6: Saint Benedict). Make sure they put their name at the top of the document!

4) If they turn in this make-up incomplete (not enough facts or incorrect information) they will not receive credit so please review the document with your child before you send it!

5) It can be emailed to  Please use this subject so it is not missed: Saint Form Make up- Child’s First and Last Name (ex: Saint Form Make up- Sally Jones)
