Dear Eighth Grade Parents,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 year of St. Eulalia’s Religious Education program. We are excited to be your child’s teachers this year, and are looking forward to sharing our faith with them. We would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves.

I am Kelley McConnell and this is my seventh year of teaching Confirmation at St. Eulalia’s. I also have the pleasure of serving as our Director of Youth Ministry at St. Eulalia’s and look forward to the opportunity to engage your students in the spiritual, service, and social opportunities we provide through our active and robust youth ministry program.

I am Vince Galko and this is my seventh year of teaching Eight Confirmation Candidates at St. Eulalia's. My wife. Megan and I have five children who have completed or are currently enrolled as religious education students at our parish. I look forward to working with you and your children as we prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation.

In-person classes will run from 9-10am on Sundays. If the NP school district is closed on Monday for a holiday weekend, we will not have religious ed classes the Sunday before. Please see the calendar that was sent with your registration letter or the online version on the parish website.

Any class announcements will be sent via email and Remind (see below for instructions on joining the Eighth Grade Remind class) and will be posted on this eighth grade web page.

Aside from the book materials we will also spend some time on the history of the Catholic Church, as well as preparation for Confirmation.

Please remember, as this is a sacrament year and the Sunday obligation to attend mass has been reinstated, we expect all 8th grade students to attend weekly mass. There is a sign-in binder on the table in the back of the church. Please have your student sign each week.

You are your child’s first teacher of the faith, but we thank you for sending them to our program.

Please never hesitate to reach out to either of us with questions or concerns.
Kelley McConnell & Vince Galko

Service Hours -- Confirmation Requirement: Students can track their Service Hours using our form. There is no difference between these tracking documents – some parents prefer the pdf while others have requested the spreadsheet! During their 7th and 8th grade years we ask all students to complete 20 hours (total) of volunteer service to their community and the parish to help them understand the connection between our faith and serving others. A key tenet to Catholic Social Justice Teaching.

If you have any questions whatsoever – please never hesitate to reach out to me. That’s what I’m here for!

Resources for Students and Parents

Parish Required Confirmation Forms



Below is a brief outline of what children enrolled in St. Eulalia's Religious Education Program learn during Eighth Grade

During this year students prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation bestowed in the Spring. Students must research and choose their confirmation name, invite an adult to be their sponsor, perform 20 hours of church and community service, and attend a scheduled Confirmation Retreat. Our dedicated teachers ensure the students are prepared to confirm their faith before the parish community.

Although some see receiving of Confirmation as a "graduation" from Religious Education, and in the sense that students no longer have to attend weekly CCD classes, we like to think that everyone continues their own personal education in our Catholic Faith throughout their lives. Following Confirmation students are invited to actively participate in the Parish of St. Eulalia's thru ministry (as altar servers or lectors), service, Youth Group and more.


Sign Up for Religious Education -- You can complete the online registration form or download the PDF registration form. The completed PDF can be place it into the Offertory Box in the church, mail to the parish office (ATTN: Alysia Clancy), or drop it off at the parish office.

If you are new to our parish, you can register online or download and complete the parish census form.
