Confirmation: The Archdiocese of Seattle has made a major change regarding the Sacrament of Confirmation (Current information about Confirmation from the Archdioese may be found at https://seattlearchymya.weebly.com/confirmation.html). Confirmation will now be taught in 7th grade. It is up to the Pastor of the parish and school to decide how this is to be implemented. Father Woodland along with consultation from the School Commission has implemented the following guidelines for St. Philomena School and Parish for 2020-2021:

  • Starting September of 2020, The 7th grade students (Class of 2022- current 6th grade) will be taught Confirmation through their religion classes by Ms. Tarabochia

  • Starting August 2020, the 8th grade students (Class of 2021- current 7th grade) along with any other student in 9th-12th grade will be taught Confirmation through the parish program taught by Mrs. Kara Montplaisir. This program is usually taught on Sunday afternoons.

  • There will be a Confirmation retreat for all 7th-12th grade students in January of 2021 and all the students will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation together in late January or February 2021.
