Confirmation completes the grace of Baptism by a special outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which equips the Catholic for active participation in the worship and life of the Church. Youth are invited to prepare to receive Confirmation in the 9th grade. Candidates need to be actively involved in religious education during their 8th grade year.
Confirmation Registration will begin online November 1, 2019 for our upcoming candidates.
Our Confirmation Preparation program begins in January, 2020. The Sacrament of Confirmation will be received in November, 2020.
CONFIRMATION youth are invited to prepare to receive Confirmation in the 9th grade. They should be actively involved in religious education during both the 8th and 9th grade as remote preparation. This program provides youth with an opportunity to deepen their personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to serve Him in the Church and the community. Their preparation consists of meeting in groups for Confirmation catechesis, participating in service work, meeting with a sponsor, attending a retreat, and having an interview with a parish priest or staff member.
