St. Patrick’s Religious Formation is proud to serve our community of over 1500 children and their families in Smithtown, NY. Our faith formation program is an 8 year process culminating with our students receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation in their 8th and final year. Students begin their studies when they enter the 1st grade. They enter into a 2-year sacramental preparation in which they receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion in their second year. Each year thereafter they advance a level. They must complete each level with a firm understanding of their faith and the key concepts for that year before moving forward. Once they enter into Level 7, our students begin another 2-year sacramental program preparing them for Confirmation. It is with great pride and joy as we watch our young adults reaffirm their beliefs in the Catholic faith and say YES to becoming a full fledge member of our faith community.
