Confirmation

We are pleased to offer in-person instruction this year for students in grades 7 through 12 preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.  Confirmation classes will begin on Sunday, October 10th from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and will be held approximately every other week until students are confirmed in May, 2022.  As part of their Sacramental Preparation requirements students must attend a Retreat.  This year's retreat is scheduled at Our Lady of Peace the weekend of March 18th - 20th, 2022.  

If you were unable to attend our recent Parent Information meeting, and would like to learn more about this year's program, please: Click Here

We ask for a $20 donation for each student receiving Confirmation (with an additional fee in the Spring for those attending the retreat).  No student will be turned away for non- payment and scholarships are available.

Confirmation is the final of the three Sacraments of Initiation. "Confirmation completes the grace of Baptism by a special outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which seal or 'confirm' the baptized in union with Christ and equip them for active participation in the worship and apostolic life of the Church" (Catechism of the Catholic Church Glossary). "By the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed" (CCC 1285).

Confirmation is not a completion of sorts, but a new beginning, a stepping out into a new role as members of the Body of Christ. It is important to note, however, that while parents are often the ones making sure their child receives this Sacrament, the grace of Confirmation does not take root unless the one receiving it has chosen the Sacrament of their own accord.

Our youth Confirmation Program is available for anyone currently in grades 7-12. If you are an adult seeking the Sacrament of Confirmation, click here.

Registration for 2021-22 is now open!!   If you have any questions that can't be answered in the information below, please contact the Parish Office.
