Confirmation

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.

Adult Confirmation Preparation Series begins Oct 24th

We will hold an Adult Confirmation Preparation series in October and November. It will be a series of five sessions for adults who were baptized Catholic as infants and made first Holy Communion as children but did not receive the sacrament of Confirmation when they were teenagers. Catholics who wish to be a godparent for Baptism or a sponsor for Confirmation must be confirmed and be registered members of a parish. This series is a good chance for an adult to be confirmed and therefore qualify to serve as a godparent or sponsor for a family member when asked. If you were one of those teens who missed out on Confirmation and would now like to be Confirmed, Click Here to Register for Adult Confirmation Classes now. These sessions will take place on five consecutive Sunday afternoons from 1:30 to 2:30, beginning on October 24th, in the Large Conference Room of the Parish Office Center. Confirmation is the third sacrament of the three sacraments of initiation and Catholics should receive the sacrament to be a fully-initiated member of the Church.

Confirmation Classes for Adults and older Teens
There are usually five scheduled sessions. These classes are 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.
