How do I enroll my child in formation for Confirmation?

We are beginning a new initiative at St. Catharine in 2021 called Family of Faith.

We are asking PSR/CCD/Sunday School (whatever you want to call it!) families to participate, along with the rest of our parish, in Family of Faith.

All families with children in kindergarten through eighth grade are strongly encouraged to register and attend, and families with children preparing to receive a Sacrament, must be enrolled in (and regularly attending) Family of Faith.

Students preparing to receive Confirmation will have four additional sessions throughout the year with a catechist to prepare them for this amazing sacrament. We believe that this program is better suited to provide true spiritual formation to the children and their families.

To enroll in Family of Faith simply click below!

Were you asked to be a Confirmation sponsor at another parish?

If you are a registered parishioner at St. Catharine, but wish to be a sponsor for a Confirmation taking place at another parish, please fill out this Sponsorship form for Baptism or Confirmation, and send it to the parish office.



St. Catharine Church

500 S Gould Rd

Columbus, OH 43209

We will then send it to the parish where the baptism will take place.
