Participation in the Parish Community

The Sacrament of Confirmation equips us for our lifelong vocation and mission within the Catholic Church; participation in the local parish community is essential to our vocation and mission. 

Our Bishop reinstated the Sunday Obligation for all of the faithful within our diocese in June 2021 as part of the "Come Home to Communion" campaign. Our Confirmation candidates and their families should be making every effort to attend Sunday Mass with their St. Therese Parish Community, as well as getting involved in some sort of ministry at the parish. If you are traveling, you still need to be going to Sunday Mass. Check to find a Catholic Church to worship at near you.


We encourage our Confirmation candidates in particular to attend the 5:00 PM Sunday Mass, immediately following each Confirmation session. After the 5:00 PM Mass, our Confirmation candidates are encouraged to join our high school youth at High School Young Church (formerly known as Life Teen) in the "Upper Room" in the 3rd Floor of the EEC for games, discussion, and fellowship.

Service to the Community

All Confirmation candidates, as part of their Sacramental Formation, are expected to do at least 7 hours of approved community service. Check the requirements below for more details.
