CONFIRMATION

Prepare For

Sacrament_Confirmation_2_edited.jpg

When we are baptized, we are adopted by the Father and given the opportunity to participate in Christ’s role as Priest, Prophet, & King. Through Confirmation, God completes our Baptismal grace and deepens our call to live this three-fold mission. This is not a rite of passage or graduation from religious education. It is a sacrament of mission and power, giving Christians the strength and grace to live out the mission of Jesus Christ and His Church.

Confirmation preparation typically starts once a teen has started 10th grade. The sacrament is celebrated in October the following year.

 

Teens can register for Confirmation Preparation if they have met the following requirements:

  • Have been baptized

  • Will reach the age of 15 by September 1st

  • Will participate in Youth Discipleship Small Groups (both Catholic and Public School Youth) during the 2023-2024 School Year

  • Have attended a Catholic School or Youth Discipleship Small Group for the year prior to and including the year of preparation ​(2022-23 and 2023-24)

 

Registration is required by September 1. The cost is $185.​

Parents must attend an informational meeting before they register their teen. Please email

Nancy Ahern at nahern@hanb.org in order to be notified of our next meeting. After you attend the parent meeting, you can click here to register.
