Confirmation is the second of the sacraments of initiation and we pray the Holy Spirit will fill those that are confirmed with grace that deepens their life in Christ and strengthens them to live the Catholic faith.
We invite those seeking the sacrament of Confirmation to begin their preparation for full initiation into the Catholic Church by calling the parish office for more information on the preparation process.
Young parishioners that have completed the 8th grade this year should receive a letter over the summer with information on the Confirmation preparation process. Candidates will be required to participate in several educational session, perform service to the community and participate in a retreat as part of this process.
Our next large group Confirmation will be in May 2017.
The Introductory Session in September 25, 2016 at the 12:15pm Mass with a short meeting afterwards.
Baptized Adults who have not been Confirmed should call the Parish Office for guidance on adult preparation for Confirmation.
Children that have not been baptized will receive their sacraments through the RCIC program.
Adults that have not been baptized will prepare and received the sacraments through the RCIA program.
Confirmation Classes for Adults
There are five scheduled sessions and each takes place on a Monday evening. These classes are being held to prepare adult Catholics who may not have had the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation when they were teenagers. You need to be confirmed to serve as a sponsor/godparent for Confirmation or Baptism and it is the expectation of the Church that you be confirmed prior to the celebration of the sacrament of marriage.
